CORONAVIRUS

If you have been to an affected place in the last 14 days OR had contact with somebody with Coronavirus AND have any of these symptoms:  Cough, Fever, Shortness of breath, please search 'NHS coronavirus' for advice and to access the 111 online coronavirus service, or call NHS 111.  Please do not attend the surgery.

In light of the current situation and in the best interests of our patients and staff, we will temporarily be changing routine appointments to telephone consultations.  Please speak to a receptionist if you wish to book a telephone call to discuss a routine medical matter with a nurse or doctor.  Patients with urgent queries will be triaged by the doctor in the usual way and offered a face to face consultation if required.  For more information on our triage service, please click on the appointments tab at the top of the page.

Online booking of appointments has been temporarily suspended and we apologise for this inconvenience.

 The NHS is well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases and has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal.

In Times of Bereavement

If Death Occurs At Home

1. Telephone the doctor who will visit to confirm that death has taken place.

2. Contact a funeral director.

3. Arrange to collect the doctor's Medical Certificate of Death (usually from the surgery).

4. Take this to the Registrars Office, (together with the deceased's Medical Card and Birth Certificate, if available) for the area in which the death took place. Alternatively you can register by declaration at any convenient Registrars Office but certificates will not be available as these will have to be posted to you a few days later.

5. The Registrar will normally issue a Green coloured certificate for you to give to your funeral director who will look after necessary arrangements for the funeral. The Registrar will also issue a white notification certificate for the DSS. They will also enquire as to the number of Certified Copies you require for dealing with the deceased finances (a fee is payable for each copy).

If The Death Occurs In Hospital

1. Contact a funeral director to inform him his services are required.

2. Collect the certificate from the hospital then follow 4 - 5 as above

Note For Cremation

Your funeral director will usually liaise directly with the surgery regarding the additional certification required.
