In light of the current Covid-19 conditions, we would like to thank all our patients at Furnace House Surgery for their understanding during these challenging times.
As a precautionary measure, all appointments to see the doctor or nurse must be made via telephone. Please appreciate the lines will be busy during this period. Patients will receive a call back from a clinician who will allocate an appointment, if necessary.
Chronic condition clinics will continue to be led by the practice nurses. However, you will receive a telephone consultation instead of a face to face consultation.
Please allow 48 hours for your prescription. If you are unable to leave your house, please contact the pharmacy of your choice to request delivery.
The current Government Guidance for employers and businesses on coronavirus (Covid-19) states;
We strongly suggest that employers use their discretion around the need for medical evidence for a period of absence where an employee is advised to stay at home either as they are unwell themselves, or live with someone who is, in accordance with the public health advices issued by the government.”
