Practice News and Updates

Important information about the coronavirus (COVID-19)

PLEASE DO NOT PRESENT AT THE MEDICAL PRACTICE IF YOU HAVE ANY OF THE FOLLOWING: A NEW COUGH, A HIGH TEMPERATURE (ABOVE 37.8 C),  IF YOU HAVE BEEN IN CONTACT WITH ANYONE WITH CORONAVIRUS OR THINK THAT YOU MIGHT HAVE CORONAVIRUS.

The NHS and Public Health England (PHE) are well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal.

The latest information on symptoms of coronovirus infection and areas where recent travel may have resulted in a high risk of exposure can be found here.

NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can give advice and tell you if you need to seek medical help.

Please use this service if:
- you think you might have coronavirus
- you've been in close contact with someone with coronavirus.

Like the common cold, coronavirus infection usually occurs through close contact with a person with novel coronavirus via cough and sneezes or hand contact. A person can also be infected by touching contaminated surfaces if they do not wash their hands.

  • - Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.
  • - Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
  • - Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • - Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.

Testing of suspected coronavirus cases is carried out in line with strict guidelines. This means that suspected cases are kept in isolation, away from public areas of GP surgeries, pharmacies and hospitals and returned home also in isolation. Any equipment that come into contact with suspected cases are thoroughly cleaned as appropriate. Specific guidance has also been shared with NHS staff to help safeguard them and others.

This is an evolving situation and the advice has changed based on emerging information. We will update our website as further guidance becomes available. Further information can be found on the Public Health England website.

Appointments

We are currently open between 8.00am and 6.30pm only.

Due to current concerns regarding Coronavirus (Covid-19), with effect from today we will be operating a full telephone triage system.

If you need to see a doctor, a nurse or arrange a blood test, please telephone the surgery and the receptionist will put your name on a list for one of the clinical team to call you back. We can also currently only offer telephone advice for online booking.

PLEASE DO NOT COME TO THE HEALTH CENTRE unless you have been contacted first by one of the clinical team.

If you have a routine appointment that has already been booked, and you develop a fever or a new continuing cough, or feel that you have symptoms of Coronavirus infection, please do not come to the Health Centre, but telephone the Practice for advice.

Please note that our Upper Beeding Surgery branch site is currently closed to patients. If you have a pre-booked appointment at Upper Beeding Surgery, a member of staff will be in contact to to either move the appointment to Steyning Medical Practice, or to amend the appointment to a telephone call.

We understand that these changes are likely to be inconvenient, but they are being taken to protect our population of vulnerable patients and our staff.  Thank you for your understanding.

armed forces veteran friendly

We are delighted to announce that we are now an Armed Forces Veteran Friendly accredited GP Practice. This means that, as part of the health commitments of the Armed Forces Covenant, we have a dedicated clinician who has a specialist knowledge of military related health conditions and veteran specific health services. This is important in helping ex-forces to get the best care and treatment. If you are ex-forces, please let your GP know, to help ensure you are getting the best possible care.

Veteran friendly accreditation

Electronic Prescription Service

The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) will soon replace paper prescriptions in GP practices in England. This means that prescriptions will instead be sent electronically by the GP to a pharmacy of your choice. You will no longer be able to collect a paper repeat prescription from the Practice – instead, you will go straight to your nominated pharmacy to pick up your medicines.

You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop. Furthermore, because your pharmacist has already received your electronic prescription, they may be able to prepare your items in advance, so you may be able pick it up with no extra wait. We are therefore asking our patients to nominate an EPS pharmacy. Please speak to a member of  staff to update your preference. Click here for further information.
