UPDATED 18/3/2020

A decision has been made by the Partners to cease operating a surgery from Longfield Lodge for the foreseeable future – this is to avoid unnecessary patient footfall – we are still open at Irlam Medical Centre

With regards to sick notes please be advised that the GPs will NOT issue sick notes for self-isolation purposes

As we are trying to cut down on footfall to the surgery (Irlam Medical Centre) please do not attend unless invited in by the GP or Nurse

  • if you need to order a prescription you can sign up for Patient Online Services (go to our website & click the link) or you can e-mail us at m.mp@nhs.net

  • we have set up a dedicated table in our foyer (between the surgery & the pharmacy) to allow patients to write their orders for prescriptions – once completed do not enter the building please put it in the post box which is clearly signposted (to the right hand side of the main doors)
  • if you have an appointment pre-booked with a GP you will be contacted prior to your appointment & this will either be dealt with over the phone or you will be invited in – DO NOT JUST TURN UP

  • if you have an appointment booked with a Nurse you will be contacted prior to your appointment as we are still seeing some patients for investigations (e.g. bloods)

Please continue to help us at this difficult time as we are all looking to slow the spread of this virus

  • by not coming to the surgery unnecessarily - if you have any queries the best place to look is online at www.111.nhs.uk/covid-19 or call 111

  • by keeping our phone lines as clear as possible to ensure they are free for the sickest & most vulnerable people in our community – again call 111 or go online for advice

Many thanks

 

COIL & IMPLANT BOOKINGS 

Please be advised that for the foreseeable future we will not be taking any bookings for coils or implants – please call us in about 6 weeks to see if guidelines have changed

We can only apologise for any inconvenience this may cause to our patients but we need to take all necessary precautions in the wake of this crisis

FIT NOTES

Mosslands Medical Practice will not be issuing Fit Notes for patients who are required to self-isolate.  You can self-certify for the first 7 days and your employers should accept this.  For further guidance visit the web site below for Guidance for Employees
