Important information for patients about GP appointments
As you will be aware, COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is a new illness that is spreading across the UK. Cookham Medical Centre is taking actions to protect our patients, our staff and our community by introducing a telephone first system for GP appointments. Our aim is to significantly reduce the footfall through our surgery in order to reduce the risk of spreading the virus, in line with national guidance.
All GP appointments will initially be on the telephone. These appointments can be booked for a given time or if urgent put on the Duty Dr list. You can also use our e-consult system. Telephone appointments can be booked by phone or online.
The GP will do all they can to help you over the phone – however, should they need to see you face to face for an examination, you will be invited to the surgery for this. They can also do video consultations if appropriate or may ask you to send us a photo via e-consult.
We are staggering the arrival times of patients coming in and you may be seen in your car, in one of the tents or in the building whichever is most appropriate.
Nursing appointments will continue for essential services only such as warfarin monitoring, immunisations (NOT travel) , some dressings and blood tests for monitoring certain conditions.
However if you have symptoms of Coronavirus do not attend your booked nurse appointment - but ring to discuss options.
Child Immunisations are very important and will continue. We are organising the appointment timings so that as few people as possible are on site at a time.
Our e-consult service is available please scroll down this page to access it.
We thank you for your co-operation and understanding. As you are aware, the situation and guidance is changing rapidly so we will keep patients updated by website and text.
