TACKLING CORONAVIRUS 

NEW APPOINTMENT SYSTEM

Cofton Medical Centre is no longer conducting initial face-to-face GP appointments in order to prevent the spread of Coronavirus amongst patients and staff. Access to the surgery will be only for patients with booked appointments which have been pre-arranged by a clinician. If you need to arrange an appointment, please telephone the practice.

PRESCRIPTIONS

Due to the changes in workload due to Coronavirus, prescriptions will now take 3 working days to be processed. Please ensure you give enough notice for us to process your prescription request. Please ensure you have nominated a pharmacist for the Electronic Prescription Service. This will reduce the need to attend the practice. You can order your repeat medications online. If you have difficulties in using online services please let us know.

All surgeries in England have been advised by NHS England to consult online, by phone or video link in order to tackle the spread of coronavirus.

To protect yourself and others, do not come to the practice.
