Noticeboard

Due to Covid-19 we are operating a restricted entry system, there is a door bell to press to obtain entry for appointments only. Patients who have an appointment will have their temperature taken before being allowed to enter.

Doctors and staff will be wearing scrubs and PPE  which will include face mask.
If you require a prescription please download the NHS App, or order via the practice prescription email address stccg.saltscarprescriptions@nhs.net​ or telephone after 10 am.
 All Prescriptions will be sent electronically to the chemist. NOT to be collected from the surgery

During the Covid19 Pandemic our GP's are warning against the use of Ibuprofen or Nurofen for pain or fever as patients on these have had a worse outcome in Italy as per a Lancet Research article. Our advice is to use Paracetamol only to control any fever or pain. Please also note Codeine also supresses breathing. All our patients have access to telephone advice during office hours, please ring if you need advice.

In Times of Bereavement

If Death Occurs At Home

    1. Telephone the doctor who will visit to confirm that death has taken place.
    2. Contact a funeral director.
    3. Arrange to collect the doctor's Medical Certificate of Death (usually from the surgery).
    4. Contact the local Registrar’s Office, the telephone number is normally left with the death certificate.
    5. The Registrar will normally issue a Green coloured certificate for you to give to your funeral director who will look after necessary arrangements for the funeral. The Registrar will also issue a white notification certificate for the DSS. They will also enquire as to the number of Certified Copies you require for dealing with the deceased finances (a fee is payable for each copy).



If The Death Occurs In Hospital

    1. Contact a funeral director to inform him his services are required.
    2. Collect the certificate from the hospital then follow 4 - 5 as above

 

Note For Cremation

Your funeral director will usually liaise directly with the surgery regarding the additional certification required.
