In light of the currently evolving COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation in the UK, Carradale Surgery is taking some preventative measures to help protect our community.
We are encouraging contact by way of telephone, email or using our letterbox in the side door for paper correspondence.
In order to minimise the spread of the virus, we are triaging all requests for appointments. and encouraging patients to engage in telephone consultations for the time being, rather than attending the surgery for ‘face-to-face’ appointments. If the clinician then decides it is necessary for you to be seen in clinic, this will be arranged for you.
We have locked our main entrance, allowing entry only to attend essential appointments, thus limiting the number of patients in our waiting room at one time.
Please email Carradale.email@example.com (preferable), call (01583 431376) or post through the letterbox at the left-hand side of the building.
Please collect your medication 48 hours after ordering and between the hours of 2:00 pm and 4:30pm from Carradale Surgery. Ring the doorbell if collecting a repeat prescription.
We would ask that everyone understands and appreciates our reasons for implementing the above measures; we have the best interests of our entire community in mind and are keen to minimise the risk of infection to as many patients as possible.
Skipness Village Hall will be open from 1:30pm to 1:45pm every Wednesday for the near future, for patients to be able collect their medication,
Medication will be placed on tables in the Hall. A member of staff will be present to ensure that the correct prescriptions are collected.
Due to the present climate the prescriptions will not need to be signed for on receipt of the medication.
If the patient is unable to collect the prescription, a relative, a carer or friend would be able to collect the medication for the patient.
Please will everyone attending comply to social distancing advice . Please make sure that only one person enters the hall at one time. and the distance of 2 meters or the length of a broom stick between each person even outside the hall.
If any medication is not collected in that time they will be returned to Carradale surgery for collection there.
PLEASE USE HAND GEL WHEN ENTERING AND EXITING THE BUILDING.
