ANNOUNCEMENT

Dear Patients,

As we move into the next phase of the COVID19 pandemic we all would like
say a huge thank you to our patients for your help and understanding
this year.

Throughout the Lockdown we have remained open and available to look
after you although you will probably be aware that we have been trying
to provide as much care as possible by telephone / video consultation to
reduce the risk of infection. Some routine proceedures were temporarily
put off but we are now working through the back log.

However, some changes need to stay as we know the COVID19 virus contues
to circulate and cause serious illness. We will continue to provide care
by telephone / video consultation wherever possible. Throughout the
pandemic we have seen patients face to face where clinically necessary
and this will contuine. We will continue to protect each other by
patients and staff wearing masks / face coverings for consultations and
by using social distancing and restricting the number of people in the
surgery building. We will continue to do everything we can to make sure
that coming to the surgery does not put you at increased risk of
catching COVID19.

The single most helpful thing that you, our patients, have done is that
you have heeded the advice about preventing the spread of the virus and
Milton has not been overwhelmed by the pandemic.

Although 111 remains in charge of advising and treating people who may
have COVID19 please remember that we are still here to look after you
for other illnesses.

The Milton Surgery Team

Home Visits

Doctor's bagWhilst we encourage our patients to come to the surgery, where we have the proper equipment and facilities available, we do appreciate this is not always possible. In this respect, if you do need a home visit, you can help us by calling reception before 10:00.

You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. Your GP will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed. Please bear this in mind and be prepared to provide suitable details to enable the doctor to schedule house calls

You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
