Important information for patients about GP appointments
As you will be are aware, COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is a new illness that is spreading across the UK. As such, Cookham Medical Centre is taking actions to protect our patients, our staff and our community by introducing a new telephone triage system for GP appointments. Our aim is to significantly reduce the footfall through our surgery in order to reduce the risk of spreading the virus, in line with national guidance.
All GP appointments will initially be on the telephone. If you have an appointment booked with a GP, please do not come to the surgery – please stay at home and the doctor will call you at the allocated time. The GP will do all they can to help you over the phone – however, should they feel the need to see you face to face for an examination, you will be invited to the surgery for review.
Nursing appointments will continue as planned but we ask you to consider the national guidance before visiting the practice https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus
Child Immunisations are very important and will continue. We are organising the appointment timings so that as few people as possible are in the waiting room at a time.
Our e-consult service is available please scroll down this page to access it.
We thank you for your co-operation and understanding. As you are aware, the situation and guidance is changing rapidly so we will keep patients updated by website and text.
