Advice Re: Unwell or injured children

All patients are advised to wear a face covering when visiting the surgery. If you require a prescription please download the NHS App, or order via the practice prescription email address stccg.saltscarprescriptions@nhs.net​ or post your prescription slip through our letterbox. Don't enter the surgery to hand in your prescription slip.

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. Some patients, once rang the bell, may be told to wait outside our fire exit to await direction from a clinician wearing PPE.

Doctors and staff will be wearing scrubs and PPE  which will include face mask.
 
 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.

Home Visits

Doctor's bag

Whilst we encourage our patients to come to the surgery, where we have the proper equipment and facilities available, we do appreciate this is not always possible. In this respect, if you do need a home visit, you can help us by calling reception before 10:30. Visit requests after this time will usually be undertaken the following day unless they are regarded as urgent.

Patients may request a home visit only if they are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. GPs will only visit patients if they think that their medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed. Please bear this in mind and be prepared to provide suitable details to enable the doctor to schedule house calls. 

GPs may refer a Community Nurse to visit a patient at home. A Health Visitor will visit patients with new babies and newly registered patients with a child under 5 years.
