Germ Defence

We are letting you know about a very useful website called Germ Defence which was created by a team of doctors and scientists to give you advice that has been proven to reduce the spread of viruses in the home. It can help you plan how to protect yourself and members of your family from infection by COVID-19 and ‘flu.

It’s easy to use and only takes 10 minutes – just click on this link:

Please pass details of the Germ Defence website to your friends and family.

 Over 20,000 people previously took part in research about Germ Defence

  • People who followed the advice in Germ Defence had fewer and less severe illnesses – and so did the people they lived with
  • Results of the study were published in The Lancet medical journal
  • Germ Defence has been updated with COVID-19 advice to help prevent a wave of COVID-19 and ‘flu this Autumn/Winter
  • Information about how the Germ Defence website is being evaluated is available here.

CHANGE OF DISPENSARY OPENING TIME 

As a result of requests to the PPG, the dispensary hatch will open for an extra half an hour on Thursday evenings from 15.30 – 18.00. This will commence on Thursday 5th November 2020. All other opening times remain the same.

Coronavirus – the new normal

GP Practices have had to significantly alter their working practices to help them manage capacity for the Coronavirus response.  In order to continue slowing down the spread of the virus and keep people safe, primary care across Dorset is seeking to continue to deliver services via this new approach, whilst maximising the use of technology.

With this in mind, it is vital that we ensure people understand how to access primary care in order to maintain patient safety and establish a new normal which embraces the positive changes brought over the past few months.

Key messages

  • The Practice is still open and we encourage people to get in touch for any health concerns that cannot be dealt with by you, your family or friends or the local Pharmacy
  • Routine vaccinations and immunisations are important and are available at the Practice
  • Please only visit the Surgery in person if you have an appointment, have been advised to do so by one of our clinicians or are collecting medication
  • If you think you need to see a Doctor please call the Practice to speak to a clinician or use e-consult (see above)
  • If you need to be seen face-to-face you will be given an appointment to come to the Practice
  • This change is happening to keep staff and patients safe
  • We want to discourage people waiting outside the Practice for appointments and waiting in the waiting area to reduce the spread of coronavirus
  • Coming in for a booked appointment means you will be seen promptly
  • Staff will clean down areas before you arrive to keep you safe
  • If you have coronavirus symptoms DO NOT come to the Practice – self isolate and seek help via the Practice or NHS 111

 

DISPENSED MEDICATION –

Please collect your medication from the Reception window at the rear of the building

If you have difficulty collecting your medication because of the new Coronavirus self isolating guidance, please let us know and we will arrange for someone to collect your medication for you

To help our dispensers cope with the increased demand caused by Coronavirus, please don’t attempt to collect your medication early.  We are only dispensing one months medication as usual.

Thank you
