NHS 111 - Isolation Note

A new online service has been lauched for any patients of the practice what are unable to work due to COVID-19. Through this new service you will be able to obtain an isolation note for your employer if directed by the NHS 111 online service.

In order to reduce the ever growing pressure on our GP surgery, you will be able to obtain the isolation note without consulting your surgery.

In order to gain access to the isolation notes please use the link below.

111.nhs.uk/isolation-note

You will be asked to complete a few question and then the isolation note will be sent to your email address. If you do not have access to an email address, you are able to have the isolation note sent to a trusted family member or friend or alternatively it can be sent straight to your employer.

You can also utilise the service on behalf of somebody else.

Patient Information

Due to changes in COVID-19 the internal front doors of the surgery will be closed to prevent risk to patients and staff.

This will mean patients who have been triaged by a Clinician and asked to visit the surgery will need to use the intercom system in the foyer. The intercom system should only be used for booked appointments or a clinical emergency.

Please use the repeat prescription forms in the foyer and place your requests in the outside box. If you haven’t already got a nominated pharmacy add this information to your request. All prescriptions where possible will be electronic to nominated pharmacies.

IF YOU HAVE A CONTINUOUS COUGH, A HIGH TEMPERATURE OR LOSS OF TASTE / SMELL.

PLEASE DO NOT ENTER LANE ENDS SURGERY.

If you feel well return home and self-isolate

If you feel unwell ring NHS 111 or visit www.nhs.uk/coronavirus

Thank you for co-operation in these exceptional circumstances.
