Coronavirus News Update - 19th May 2020
We would like to inform patients that Iver Heath Health Centre is currently only open on a Monday morning and a Wednesday morning and afternoon but only for pre-booked appointments such as routine baby vaccinations, so please do not attend unless dropping off a prescription through our letter box. Thank you.
Please note that if you have a pre-booked appointment at Iver Heath Health Centre please bring and wear your own mask as we only have a limited supply. You may be asked to wait in your car should you be early for your appointment so please if you have a mobile phone, bring this along with you so that we are able to contact you to bring you into the surgery.

CORONAVIRUS SOCIAL DISTANCING
NHS letter about Shielding - Youtube link to give information about the Shielding letters some patients will have received
Our Shielding patients will have or will be receiving a telephone call as a follow up to their letter they have received.
As part of the overall 'social distancing' strategy to protect staff and patients, we are asking the public to telephone the surgery regarding any queries e.g. making appointments. Please DO NOT visit the surgery unless you are posting a repeat prescription request through our letter box.
The Online Appointment booking (Patient Access) has now been suspended at the practice - please call 01753 653008 to arrange a telephone consultation with a GP.
The admin team will be asking callers of appointments, 3 questions using a pathway to navigate them into:
1. A telephone call appointment which will be either a video link call if their mobile allows or a telephone call.
2. If a clinician after triaging a call with a patient wishes to bring them in to the practice will do so.
3. Whether the patient needs to call 111 for coronavirus assessment
Please do not attend an appointment if:
You have a new persistent cough
Difficulty in breathing
- Loss of sense of smell or taste
Have had any contact with a family member who has these symptoms
Please telephone the surgery instead for your consultation.
