Community Pharmacy Consultation Service

Did you know…?

We are participating in a new approach to improve access for patients to GP appointments. The aim is to direct patients to the most appropriate healthcare professional, which may be a GP or a pharmacist. If your symptoms could be resolved by a booked consultation with the pharmacist instead of the GP, you will be given a same-day referral to a pharmacy of your choice. We think this is a good thing.

Once you see how great your local pharmacist is – they are highly trained and skilled clinicians experienced in treating minor illnesses – we don’t think you’ll look back. This will also help us to free up GP appointments for people with more complex health needs and ensure that everyone gets treated at the right time, by the right healthcare professional.

We are keen to hear what you think and will be listening to your comments and feedback about your experience of using this service.

What restrictions will look like at City Way Medical Practice after 19th July 2021

 

For the time being there will be no changes here at the practice. Patients coming to the surgery will still need to wear a mask, use the hand sanitiser and socially distance. Our staff will also continue to wear appropriate PPE.

 

We have made this decision as often patients coming to the surgery are sick, vulnerable and maybe unvaccinated due to medical reasons, so we feel that these precautions will help to protect everyone. We also need to minimise the number of our staff catching Covid so we can keep a functioning service, so for this reason alone these measures are vital.

 

Our consultations will continue, these might be offered as face to face, by phone or by video. All appointments will continue to be triaged by a Clinician and we will invite patients in for face to face consultations when clinically needed. It is worth noting that we are consulting with higher numbers of patients than we ever did before the pandemic. Our doors are still open but just in a different way.

 

Unfortunately we still cannot fully open the waiting room. There is not adequate ventilation. We do not have windows that open and we are not be able to leave the door open because we will not be able to control the number of patients who enter the building.  

 

We hope you will understand why we need to continue with these measures and keep the surgery as safe for everyone as we can.

We have all come so far in trying to minimise the impact of Covid, let’s continue to stay safe together.

    Flu Vaccine Delivery Delay

    We have just been informed by our flu vaccine supplier that there is a 1 to 2 week delay in our deliver because of unforeseen road freight challenges. We cannot make any bookings until the new delivery date is confirmed. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused, but this is unfortunately out of our control. We will keep you updated.

    Inappropriate Behavior

    It has been reported that a number of patients have been kicking the front door, bashing the front window and also continuously holding their finger on the buzzer until a receptionist comes to the window. This behaviour is completely unacceptable and it will result in a written warning. Any further instances of this behaviour could see you removed from our practice list under our zero tolerance policy.

    Reception

    We are now experiencing a large number of patients queuing outside the practice to speak to reception. Although we are open we are not allowing patients in the practice unless they have a booked appointment. We are still in a pandemic and we will not be opening our doors until we are told it is safe to.
