COVID-19 INFORMATION

Wuhan Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Wells City Practice has changed the way appointments are run in response to the recent developments in the spread of the Covid-19 virus. The changes have been carefully considered with a view to keeping our patients and the staff as safe and healthy as possible. We are trying to minimise the risks associated with the virus whilst continuing to provide a service to meet our patients’ needs.

Face to face consultations will be avoided as far as possible to minimise spread of the virus and in particular, to protect our older and more vulnerable patients and will only be arranged if the doctor decides it is needed. Otherwise, we hope to provide the best care possible by use of ‘phone consultation and where possible and useful, video consultation from your mobile phone to our computer.

If you need to speak to a GP, please phone reception as normal. If your problem is urgent, a ‘phone call with the duty doctor will be arranged. If not urgent, a ‘phone call will be arranged with one of the other doctors.

Please attend childhood immunisation appointments as planned. If you require blood tests, injections, other immunisations or other procedures, please ‘phone reception and a ‘phone call with a GP will be arranged to discuss what is needed.

If you have any other queries, please ‘phone reception.

Please see this website for information and check regularly for updates as things are likely to change day by day.

We would like to thank the Wells community for your understanding in this matter and hope that together, we can all help make this very difficult time a little easier to bear.

Face Masks

When visiting your GP Practice it would be really helpful if you could bring your own mask or face covering. It doesn't have to be a surgical mask, it could be your favourite scarf or even one of the many beautiful handmade masks advertised locally. There is also guidance on the Gov.uk website for how to make your own mask.  In doing this you will help preserve our vital stocks so that your practice can keep working for you.

 

Wells Coronavirus Network

The community of Wells has come together to support those who are facing difficulties due to the current emergency. We can help anyone who needs it (you don't have to be in any special group or over 70) with collecting prescriptions, shopping, dog walking, companionship phone-calls etc.
