Latchford Medical Centre, working hard to be effective, efficient and family focused.
Covid Restriction Update:
Throughout the pandemic we have made the surgery as safe as possible for all our patients and staff and will continue to do so going forward.
From July 19th nothing will change at the surgery - patients will need to still wear a mask, socially distance and use hand sanitiser in the surgery and staff will continue to wear PPE. We will continue to use the door buzzer and have different arrangement for anyone with COVID symptoms. We do understand that it can be frustrating, but we know that when people come to us they are sick and vulnerable (and some cannot receive the covid vaccinations due to medical reasons) so we feel it would be wrong to not take these small precautions that can help to protect people.
Also whilst the medical risks of COVID are reduced by vaccination, the impact of self-isolation due to a COVID outbreak remain considerable.
In terms of 'opening up', as many of you know, we have never been shut and in fact have consulted with much higher numbers of patients than we did pre-covid (face to face, by phone and by video), not counting giving thousands of COVID vaccines at Warrington Wolves since the start of the year.
We will continue to request people use eConsult where possible, or reception will help you if you cannot. As the risks to all of COVID have reduced, the proportion of face to face appointments will increase. Knowing what your needs are is important to enable you to find the right person or service to help.
The receptionist team do a very important job for us and are following principles we have agreed as a practice. Thank for your patience and kindness with them.
Latchford Medical Centre has come so far in trying to minimise the impact of Covid and we are sure you understand that we need to keep the surgery as safe for ALL patients as we can.
As a patient of Latchford Medical Centre practice we are asking for your support and ask that you please DO NOT turn up at the practice. If you have a COVID related health concern in the first instance use NHS 111 online or if unable to do so call 111. For non COVID related health concerns, please complete an eConsult or contact the practice.
Submit a medical or administrative eConsult to us BEFORE 12:00pm and we will respond to you by the end of that SAME DAY.
If you submit your request after 12:00pm we will contact you by the end of the next working day. (excluding weekends and bank holidays)
eConsult is a free online service that enables registered patients to contact us anytime between 6.30pm Sunday and 6.30pm Friday
