We ask that you continue to be patient and understanding in these difficult times.

If you wish to register with Manor Field Surgery, registration forms can be collected from our reception. Please try to avoid the busy times before 11am to keep your waiting time to a minimum.

Registration forms and other required documents can also be printed off and handed in to our receptionists.

Additional New Patient Form (children under 13)

Please ensure the documents are fully completed to avoid any delays to your registration.


SUPPORT YOUR SURGERY

GP Practices and patients have faced an extremely challenging time during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

Please take a minute to read the GP Access Poster and sign BMA's petition to show your support.

Why are GPs needing to work differently

WE ARE OPEN

Manor Field Surgery would like to clarify that we have been open throughout the pandemic and our staff have never worked harder.

We have made huge system changes to follow ever changing advice from NHS England with the aim of keeping patients and staff safe.

Following national guidance from NHS England we telephone triage all GP appointments, but when clinically appropriate and safe we see patients face to face and have been doing so throughout the pandemic.

The waiting room can now safely only have a certain number of patients in due to social distancing. 

Staff must change PPE and clean rooms between all patient contacts.

We cannot safely return to the previous system without putting people at risk.


SOCIAL MEDIA

The practice has become increasingly aware of the use of Facebook and other Social Media platforms by patients as a means of them expressing their views regarding Manor Field Surgery.

Due to patient confidentiality, the practice is not in a position to respond to such posts, nor clarify exactly what happened and the rationale for clinical decisions. Once a post has been put online, it is almost impossible to remove and defamation laws are equally applicable to social media.

We welcome the views of patients to enable us to improve the service we deliver, but request that all feedback to the practice are made via the appropriate mechanisms.


PLEASE WEAR A FACE MASK

We request that ALL patients attending the surgery wear face coverings.

Many of our patients are vulnerable and we want to do everything we can do keep them safe.

Although face masks are no longer mandatory in indoor public spaces (as of 27/01/22), they are still compulsory in all GP practices. Infection Prevention and Control requirements state that patients must continue to wear a face mask, unless exempt.

If you have any questions, please let us know through our Facebook page or email roccg.manorfieldsurgery@nhs.net.

We ask that you do not visit the surgery unless you have an appointment.

Thank you for your help and support.


CORONAVIRUS - UPDATE

Covid-19 Vaccination Status

From 17 May 2021, people in England who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can demonstrate their vaccination status for international travel. A full course is currently two doses of any approved vaccine. Vaccine status will be available from: 

  • the NHS App which you can download from app stores 

  • the NHS website (from 17 May 2021)

It may take more than a week for your identity to be checked and verified so you can use these services.

If you cannot access these online services, and you have had 2 vaccines, you can request a paper letter from the NHS by calling 119. Only call 119 if you had your second dose more than 5 working days ago. It may take 7 working days for the letter to arrive.

This practice is not able to provide you with a letter that shows your COVID-19 vaccination status.

When you're planning your travel, check the latest information on demonstrating your COVID-19 status when travelling abroad on the gov.uk website. Make sure there is time to get  proof of your vaccination status before you leave.


CORONAVIRUS

Over the next few days we will change the way we book and the duration of clinics, process repeat prescriptions, complete medicine reviews as well as how we support our patients. We are doing this to provide our patients with what we feel is the best care based on evidence from across the UK and internationally.

All appointments will be screened by a Doctor or Nurse beforehand. Patients with booked appointments will be contacted in due course.

We will provide more telephone and online support as well as video conferencing.

Given limited space in the waiting area we request that patients DO NOT arrive before their appointment time. If you are a patient, please only attend with a relative/friend/carer if essential. Please maintain social distancing if waiting to enter the surgery or talk to receptionists - 2 meters / 6 ft between other patients.

From 16th March 2020, until further notice, patients who have not signed up for online services or the Rotherham Health App will be able to order their repeat medication by emailing roccg.manorfieldsurgery@nhs.net. Please include your name, address, date of birth, up-to-date contact telephone number and the medication you require. Letter boxes are also available outside the surgery for repeat prescriptions.

Not all of this will work for all patients and we will be sensitive to individual needs and situations. We are doing our best; if any patients have ideas as to how we might be able to deliver a better service at this time, please let us know.

Third party ordering of repeat prescriptions on behalf of patients

 We NO LONGER accept any repeat prescription requests from community pharmacies on behalf of patients.

Patients (or their carer, nominated family member/friend) will have to order repeat prescriptions directly from the surgery themselves.

Collections of prescriptions from the practice by community pharmacies on behalf of patients will not be affected.

 

The 23 practices made/making this change, with full support of NHS Rotherham CCG, have carefully considered all options, engaged extensively with key stakeholders (patients, carers, patient participation groups and voluntary groups).
