Statement on COVID 19 and Beechwood Medical Centre

Hello Patients

You may have heard in the news recently about GP surgeries returning to some kind of normal activities soon and we wanted to give patients an update on the current situation.

We have seen a number of changes at the surgery since the start of the pandemic and we are still working with Public Health England, The Calderdale Clinical Commissioning Group and the NHS to offer our patients the best service that we can whilst maintaining safety for all of our patients and staff.

We are currently offering appointments by telephone, video call, online and face to face (if needed).

The Practice Nurses at the surgery see patients face to face in the clinic and we are doing this every day at a rate of around 200 + patients per week

The Health Care Assistant is seeing patients face to face in the clinic every week at a rate of around 70 + per week and the Phlebotomists are seeing patients face to face to take blood samples in the surgery on a Monday and a Tuesday every week at the rate of around 75 -100 per week

Doctors, Advanced Nurse Practitioners and Advanced Practitioners see and examine patients face to face every day as deemed clinically appropriate. This is around 70 + patients every week. This is following a discussion with the clinician on the telephone first.

We are also supporting and staffing the COVID vaccination clinics up to twice weekly and vaccinating over 1200 patients every month. We are still providing extended hours appointments on an evening and on a weekend mostly by telephone.

You can contact the surgery by telephone, e-mail, text or by using on line consulting service (accurx). If you do not have access to any of these facilities then you can ring our front door intercom and our staff will assist you the best that we can. We currently don’t open our doors fully to allow patients to access the surgery and this in line with other surgeries in Calderdale and following local guidelines.

The practice partners and management meet weekly to discuss the current situation and we will open the surgery doors to all patients once it is safe and sensible to do so. We do hope that everyone understands the need to return to some kind of normality in a safe and managed fashion. We will also keep our patients informed via our website.

Beechwood Medical Centre – 26th May 2021

Please note some changes at Beechwood Medical Centre due to the current outbreak

Please note that you should NOT attend the surgery unless you have been invited to do so by the Doctor or Nurse. All appointments are now being done via the telephone or video conferencing where possible. Repeat Prescriptions can be ordered via the online system, by using your telephone keypad or by phoning the surgery. Please do not bring your repeat slip to the surgery as we cannot accept it this way. We do understand that it is difficult for you to get through on the telephone but please keep trying and the call will be answered in due course. Please understand that our reception and admin team are under huge pressure and they will get to you as soon as they can. Please note that we are dealing with urgent and emergency situations daily and that all routine and non-urgent requirements are being managed by the clinicians. We have the capacity to examine some patients at the surgery but these are reduced from the usual capacity.

Thanks for understanding during these difficult times

Making It Easier For You Telephone Consultations

We know it can be difficult to get an appointment at your GP surgery.

Part of the reason for this is that many face-to-face appointments are used for problems that could be better dealt with over the telephone.

Similarly, patients who just want to discuss something over the telephone have to queue up for a face to face appointment because they have difficulty getting a telephone consultation.

In response to this, we are introducing a telephone consultation service to help you get the appointment you need much easier.

The surgery will now be offering structured telephone consultations, Monday to Friday mornings. When you call the surgery, if you are offered this service, your details will be taken and a GP will call you back at the pre-booked time. This GP has full access to your records and Beechwood administration services and can organize whatever is needed just as your usual GP does.

If you need to be seen by a GP, the GP you speak to will book you a face-face appointment with a GP at Beechwood Medical Centre later that same day or in a couple of days time if it is not urgent.

Children under 2 and patients with visual conditions such as rashes will be directly booked into a face-to-face appointment, unless you specifically request a telephone call.

If you have any queries about the telephone service, please contact reception.

Thank you for your patience at this time of change, and we hope you find new the new service beneficial.

Important Travel Advice for Patients
Please note that patients travelling to some foreign countries will experience difficulties in obtaining the Hepatitis A Vaccine for administering on the NHS. This is due to a National Shortage and Beechwood Medical Centre is doing all it can to obtain extra vaccines but cannot guarantee the availability. Patients may wish to try and obtain this vaccine privately but the National Shortage is also affecting these services. If you are traveling to a country where this vaccine is recommended then please speak to the Practice Nurse or click this link to check the NATHNAC Travel Advice website https://travelhealthpro.org.uk/

Emergencies

If you are confronted by a serious problem such as severe chest pain or severe bleeding call an ambulance (Tel: 999) before calling the surgery.

Disabled Access

At Beechwood surgery reserved car parking spaces for disabled patients are marked near the entrance. All services are provided at ground floor level and a disabled patients' WC is provided near the front entrance. A display board informs patients who are hard of hearing when the doctor is ready to see them. We also use an induction loop to help patients who have hearing impairments. You may wish to look at our Accessibility Policy. Beechwood Medical Centre has the use of wheelchairs should they be needed. Please arrange this with the reception team. 

Waiting in the reception area

Parents with small children are requested to exercise some parental control so that other patients, particularly the more frail, are not excessively disturbed by unsocial behaviour. There is a separate area for children to play in supervised by their parents away from the main waiting room with its own appointment call display board. The waiting room has access to free Wi-Fi but your mobile device should be on silent whilst in the surgery. This is for the benefit of all patients and staff.
