Welcome to The Saltscar Surgery
At The Saltscar Surgery we always strive to provide the best care for all our patients showing empathy & Understanding.
The public are being advised to stay at home (self-isolate) regardless of travel history or contact with confirmed coronavirus cases, if they have:
A) A new continuous cough
B) High temperature (of 37.8 degrees centigrade or higher)
For this reason we will not be booking appointments for any patients that have these symptoms. Patients will need to follow this national guidance:
Individuals should stay at home (self-isolate) for 7 days from the onset of symptoms. If someone serious symptoms they cannot manage at home they should use the NHS 111 on-line system www.111.nhs.uk/covid-19
Our clinical system is called SystmOnline. Systmonline offers a range of free of charge online services to allow patients to proactively manage their care. These services include allowing patients to book their own GP appointments and order repeat medication. SystmOnline is available as an online service via a computer or via apps (for handheld devices such as tablets or smartphones). This provides patients with convenience and flexibility when managing their care.
To register for online services patients will have to present to the surgery reception desk with two valid forms of identity and they will be asked to read & complete an online registration form.
