Welcome To Stubbington Medical Practice

To all our Patients

We are aware of the planned move to lifting the remaining Covid restrictions in England from the 19th of July.
 Medical settings are a higher risk environment and will need to be subject to more control measures than other public facilities.
 We are acting very cautiously and are maintaining:

   Social distancing

Face coverings

PPE for healthcare staff

 

 The delta variant is more transmissible, and patients may come to the surgery when they are contagious.
 It is our duty to do all we can to keep both our patients and our staff safe whilst we deliver our care.
 Thank you
Dr Hopkins and Partners

What is happening at Stubbington Practice? 

We have resumed all of our services at the practice but the way we access these services has changed. The Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic has forced us to work differently to help slow the spread of the virus. All healthcare settings are taking special measures to protect their patients and staff although working differently.

Where possible, we want to avoid lots of patients sitting in the waiting room together, as we know this increases the risk of the virus spreading and therefore we have had to change the way we offer our services to you.

If you are invited to attend an appointment, we want to ensure that there are minimal numbers of people in the practice so that we can maintain social distancing and keep patients and staff safe.

We have reduced the restrictions for patients entering the building. You will now be able to drop off and pick up paperwork as you did before, although prescriptions will still be sent electronically to the pharmacy.

There is a limit to two patients queuing at the reception desk so please queue outside if busy.

We have now opened our arrival checking screen. Please use this if you are attending for an appointment. There are wipes to clean the screen before using.

We will no longer take your temperature when you enter the building but to protect staff and other patients, please do not enter the building if you have any covid symptoms. 


How can you help

Please be patient – our phone lines are very busy, especially between 8am and 11am.

Do you have a condition that you can treat at home? If you do then please try to do this with advice from NHS online or your local pharmacist.

Do you simply need general advice? If you do, you can call 111 for this or submit an eConsult.

If you think you may have Covid-19 DO NOT go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Use the NHS111 Online service to find out what to do next: 111.nhs.uk/covid-19.

If you feel you need to see a doctor for non-Covid-19 symptoms then please call 01329 664231 and we will discuss your needs.

Please help the receptionist by giving them as much information as possible and answer any questions they may have. This will help us prioritise calls and have the right Clinician call you back.

You can email the practice at: 
fgccg.stubbington-admin@nhs.net    
(Please do not use this to request appointments - these must be made by calling reception on 01329 664231)

Please check our website and Facebook page (Stubbington Medical Practice) regularly for updates.

We do anticipate some staff shortages due to isolation and sickness and aim to continue to give you the best possible care at this difficult time. We appreciate your continued support.

We ask that you please treat our staff with courtesy and respect - thank you for your understanding and co-operation during these challenging times.


 Please Seek Alternatives to A&E for
Minor Injuries & Illness where Possible

The NHS is doing all it can to make sure it is able to support all those who will need hospital treatment as a result of coronavirus (COVID-19).

Organisations across the NHS are taking a number of steps to prepare for increased demand and you may be redirected if you attend A&E with a minor injury.

Please CLICK HERE for information on where to go if you have a minor injury or illness.

Our Emergency Dept. remains open.  If you or someone you know is experiencing a medical emergency you/they can still attend the ED, or alternatively please call 999.

Medical emergencies can include:
- loss of consciousness
- an acute confused state
- fits that aren't stopping
- chest pain
- breathing difficulties
- severe bleeding that can't be stopped
- severe allergic reactions
- severe burns or scalds

Call 999 IMMEDIATELY if you or someone else is having a heart attack or stroke.  Every second counts with these conditions.

Also call 999 if you think someone has had a major trauma, such as after a serious road traffic acident, a stabbing, a shooting, a fall from a height or a serious head injury.

If you have symptoms of COVID-19 (a high temperature or a new, continuous cough), please DO NOT attend the Emergency Dept. or any of the other services.
