We are now in the delay phase of our response to COVID-19. This entails significant changes to how we identify and manage potential cases of COVID-19.
- 1. From today the public are being advised to stay at home (self-isolate) without any testing for COVID-19, regardless of travel history or contact with confirmed cases, if they have:
- a. A new continuous cough OR
- b. High temperature (of 37.8 degrees centigrade or higher)
- 2. The geographic element of the case definition has now been removed. Travel and contact history are no longer important for diagnosis, which is on the basis of symptoms alone. If people who have travelled do not have symptoms they do not need to stay at home, regardless of their travel history.
Individuals should stay at home (self-isolate) for 7 days from the onset of symptoms.
Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you're staying at home.
If more serious symptoms develop that they cannot manage at home they should firstly use NHS 111 online . People should only call NHS 111 if they cannot use the online 111 tool.
DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY
We want to get better at communicating with our patients. We want to make sure you can read and understand the information we send you. If you find it hard to read our letters or if you need someone to support you at appointments, please let us know.
We want to know if you need information in braille, large print or easy read.
We want to know if you need a British Sign Language interpreter or advocate.
We want to know if we can support you to lip-read or use a hearing aid or communication tool.
Please tell the receptionist when you arrive for your next appointment, or call us on 01623 434600 between 8am and 6.30pm.
Extended Access to Appointments
From 01 February 2018 we will be working with some of our Local Practices, to offer additional later appointments, as well as weekend appointments.
The local Practices comprise the following: Ashfield House, Family Medical Centre, Kirkby Health Centre, Lowmoor Road Surgery, Selston Surgery, Health Care Complex and Jacksdale Medical Centre.
Appointments will be available weekdays up to 20:00 in our local area, each surgery has a set day to cover.
Appointments will also be available on Saturday mornings (by rota) in our local area so not always at KCPCC. These appointments are for non-emergencies and pre-bookable only. When appointments are not available at KCPCC during these new times (18:30 till 20:00 and on Saturdays) appointments may be available at one of the other practices listed above.
GPs, Practice Nurses and Health Care Assistants appointments will be available.
These additional appointments are for pre booking only and non-emergencies, so unlikely to be available to be booked on the same day. Nor will we be able to deal with emergencies / urgent enquiries or collection of prescriptions.
General enquiries, emergencies/urgent appointments, booking of appointments, collecting of prescriptions will continue during our normal working hours only. For urgent / emergencies or book-on-the-same-day appointments, please contact the practice with whom you are registered for help with these types of appointments.
Currently, there are no facilities to transfer blood samples to the hospital, during these new appointment times (from 18:30 to 20:00 and Saturdays). So unfortunately, we will not be able to offer routine blood taking, during these hours. We are working with the Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), to work with the hospital, so that we may be able to offer this service during our new extended hours in future.
Extended GP access service is now accessible 7 days per week. If you require an appointment on a Sunday please enquire with the reception team.
From 01 April 2019 both Abbey Medical Group and Sherwood Medical Partnership will be the provider of a Sunday and Bank Holiday Extended GP Access service providing primary care services to patients registered with practices across Mansfield, Ashfield and Sherwood. The service will be provided on alternate weekends from either Blidworth Surgery or Crown Medical Centre (Clipstone). The service will provide GP and Nursing appointments from 08:00 to 10:00 every Sunday and Bank Holiday and is a routine, pre-bookable service only
