Your Patient Participation Group (PPG) wishes to reassure everyone that despite COVID-19, your Village Surgeries Group is still operating daily for your medical needs.
We appreciate that some of you consider that the demands facing our Surgeries are much more pressing currently BUT it is vital that the day-to-day needs of our patients are managed as well.
Whilst media reports repeatedly request that we 'protect the NHS', please be assured that there IS capacity to treat individuals for conditions other than COVID-19.
As your PPG, therefore, can we reassure everyone that our Tattenhall and Farndon Doctors and Nurses are working daily. Not only are they available for telephone appointments, they will see patients if they consider it necessary and our Surgeries are now able to receive photographs too. We do not want to be in a position when the lockdown rules are relaxed, that we are overwhelmed at either Surgery or, indeed, at A&E.
We know that many of you are using Patient Access for repeat prescriptions and that these are then sent directly to your pharmacy of choice. However, if you need help in signing up for Patient Access or if you need some help with repeat prescriptions, then please do not hesitate to contact the Surgeries who will put you in touch with the right person.
