Surgery Info during Covid-19

During ongoing Covid19 outbreak period

The surgery is changing its procedures temporarily. Appointments can now ONLY be made over the phone or online. Please DO NOT come to the surgery to book any appointment OR if you have any cough, fever OR are felling unwell.

Please visit the government’s gov.uk website for the latest Covid19 advice.

We offer either pre-bookable or same day appointments, which can be booked either by telephone or on-line. For on-line booking information, please telephone reception.

You may request same day appointments for Urgent medically necessitated conditions - however for these the receptionist will ask you about the nature of the request, in order to direct your appointment to the most appropriate clinician.

Reception Front Desk 

In order to minimise face to face contact between general practice staff and patients we have taken the decision to close Reception Front Desk at Little Bushey Surgery, please call 0208 386 8888 for any front desk queries, appointments or requests.

We are asking that all patients that require an appt to telephone the surgery and make the appt (or book via the online system)

It is our aim to make a telephone consultation with a clinician in the first instance rather than a face to face appt.

Thank you for your co-operation at this time

Referrals 

In view of the current Covid-19 crisis, hospitals will not be accepting any routine referrals and are screening all urgent referrals. Please do not request routine NHS or Private referrals from the GP but do contact us if you have acute concerns or a deterioration in your medical condition.

Our Practice and local hospital trusts are constantly reviewing and adapting protocols in line with Government and NHS England advice and we hope to resume normal service as soon as possible. Thank you for your co-operation.

Childhood Immunisations 

Our practice has opted into the offer by the school nursing service of providing childhood immunisation clinics for GP practices. This is a positive effect of re-deploying the school nurses as a result of the school closures. 
Childhood Immunisations have not been cancelled during the current pandemic.  Parents will receive an invitation in the usual way by first class post. On the invitation there is a number for parents to ring.  When a parent rings for an appointment they will have a choice of venues nearest to their home.
Please do not miss your childs immunisation appointment during this pandemic.
