INFORMATION FOR PATIENTS ATTENDING PRIVATE HOSPITALS AND CLINICS
Due to long waiting times for investigations, specialist appointments and operations within the NHS, some people are deciding to attend private hospitals and clinics, locally and abroad.
If you are thinking about using a private health provider, either by self-funding or private health insurance, we strongly advise you to first consider the information held within this patient information leaflet.
Leaflet: Information for Patients Attending Private Hospitals and Clinics
RESPIRATORY SCREENING QUESTIONS IN HEALTH AND CARE SETTINGS
GP Surgeries and other health and care settings are to ask patients and accompanying carers respiratory screening questions prior to entering the premises.
Respiratory Screening Questions for use across all health and care settings
Please familiarise yourself with these questions and if you answer yes to any of them on the day of your appointment please do not attend. Instead we ask that you phone us and let us know.
Please gel your hands before entering the building.
If your matter can be dealt with over the phone we encourage you to phone us rather than coming to the surgery.
Thank you for your co-operation in helping to keep our patients and staff safe.

Please do not contact the surgery to ask for a Covid vaccination passport or status certificate – we will not be able to provide any standard document.
