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.


FACE MASKS

Due to the current rise in cases of Covid-19 we are asking patients to please wear a mask if able to do so. This is to protect our vulnerable patients and staff.


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.

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).
