IMPORTANT:WUHAN CORONAVIRUS

Advice from The Department of Health and Social Care is as follows:

We are now recommending that all travellers who develop relevant symptoms (cough, fever, shortness of breath), however mild, within 14 days of returning from mainland China, Thailand, Japan, Republic of Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia or Macau should self-isolate at home immediately and call NHS 111. We are already recommending that travellers from Wuhan and Hubei province should self-isolate for 14 days, even if they do not have symptoms, due to the increased risk from that area.

It is important that we try to control the spread of this virus; if you think you have symptoms and you have recently returned from one of the above countries or you have had contact with somebody who has the Coronavirus, DO NOT VISIT THE PRACTICECALL 111.

The surgery will be closed for training on:

Wednesday 11th March 2020 from:        1.30 - 4.30

Community Midwives

A small team of midwives is attached to each surgery. The midwives offer antenatal, labour and postnatal care whether you choose to have a hospital or home birth.

If you think you are pregnant, you should make an appointment to see a GP who will notify the midwives.

Community Nurses

The Community Nursing Service provides skilled nursing assessment, care, advice and health education to patients who cannot leave their own homes. They work closely with the GPs and other professionals to ensure that you and your family receive the help and support needed when being nursed in the community.

Patients eligible to use the nursing service in their own homes are those who:

  • are unable to travel to surgery/hospital due to serious illness or disability
  • are recovering from surgical intervention and are unable to travel
  • need palliative nursing care
  • have undergone chemotherapy/radiotherapy and travel would be detrimental to recovery
  • need treatment which cannot be appropriately carried out in the surgery setting

Our district nurses can be contacted via the surgery on 01308 861938. Please let us know if you are not going to be at home when a visit has been arranged. It is also important to keep any pets under control when a member of the team is due to call.

Health Visitors

We have two health visitors, who are specially qualified nurses. They provide information, advice and support to families and co-ordinate child development checks.

The health visitors have a separate telephone line - Beaminster (01308) 862267.
