From 24th January onwards we will be returning to the appointment system that was in place prior to the Governments ‘Covid-19 Booster Vaccine Drive’.
We will offer a mix of Pre-bookable and Emergency appointments which will take place in a ‘face to face’ manner. Patients presenting with symptoms of covid-19 (new temperature, cough or loss of sense of smell) will initially be offered a telephone call with the Doctor.
Pre-bookable appointments can be organised by telephone or, for your convenience, through online patient access. Emergency appointments can be booked by telephone only. There are a large, but limited, number of Emergency appointments available each day on a first come, first served basis.
Due to the national shortage of covid-19 lateral flow tests, we will no longer request patients with no covid-19 symptoms to perform a test before visiting. As before, please do not attend the surgery if you develop symptoms of covid-19 to help protect both your fellow patients and our staff.
We firmly believe at Yorkley that face to face working is the most efficient and effective way of dealing with your medical problems. Thank you to our patients for your understanding regarding the changes we had to make in the last few weeks.
Kind Regards, Yorkley Health Centre
