Important information for patients with regards to the Coronavirus outbreak
Due to the recent announcement that we have entered the “Delay” phase of the government plan we have made the decision to close the doors to
Vine house Health Centre. This is to protect our patients and staff. This DOES NOT mean we are closed, just that patients will need to ring the door bell for access.
Our phone lines will remain open and our reception team are endeavouring to contact all patients who have booked appointments.
These appointments will go ahead as telephone or video calls.
Please note - All future appointments have been changed to book on day. we would also encourage you to sign up to the NHS App or Patient Access to be able to book same day telephone consultations and order repeat prescriptions.
Patients with appointments for dressings or other procedures will be screened prior to their appointment and given instructions on how to access the building.
PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY UNLESS ADVISED TO DO SO
AccuRx video consultations
The Practice is using AccuRx to carry out video consultations. The consultation is not stored or recorded within the AccuRx system, the clinical staff member is required to record observations and outcomes of the consultation directly into patient records in the same way as a face to face consultation.
