Temporary changes to the Practice – from Monday 6 April 2020
As you are aware the NHS is currently dealing with the Coronovirus pandemic and in order to help us to help you, the practice needs to make some temporary changes to continue to provide healthcare and advice when you and your family need it most.
From Monday 6 April, you will NOT be able to walk into this practice any longer.
Should you need to speak to your practice, you will need to call the practice telephone number 01384 634511 in the same way as you always have. You will then be assessed by a GP/Practice Nurse who will either resolve your concern over the telephone or, if they believe you need to be seen they will make an appointment for you to see a GP/Practice Nurse. Please note this may not your practice, but they will have access to your records.
To ensure that primary care is sustainable during these challenging times. Should your GP/Practice Nurse determine that you need to be seen. We are offering face to face appointments at a practice in Portway Family Practice, Newbury Lane, Oldbury. B69 1HE. The details of which will be given to you by the GP/nurse referring you.
We very much appreciate your help and support during these difficult times. It is important that we all do our bit to support the NHS locally as it continues to see and treat you, your family and friends.
