Covid-19 – The compulsory wearing of face covering on Public Transport
The introduction of the requirement for people to wear face coverings on Public Transport is intended to help prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
There are certain groups of people who are exempt from this requirement and they include:
• children under the age of 11,
• people with disabilities
• those with breathing difficulties or
• those who are travelling with someone who relies on lip reading.
These groups of people, their parents or guardians are able to indicate the reason, if required, as to why they are not wearing a face covering. There is no requirement for general practice to issue letters for patients who are unable to wear face coverings, as the Government guidance clearly defines the exemptions to this requirement. The responsibility for issuing exemptions is with the transport provider, not GPs

 

10/06/2020

In line with hospitals, all patients who are asked to attend our 3 surgeries for an appointment will be asked to wear a face covering (mask/scarf etc)

There are many videos on YouTube on how to make your own

The Government Covid-19 Test And Trace

From 28th May 2020, anyone testing positive with Covid 19 will be contacted by the Test and Trace team to find out who they may have passed it on to so that they can be asked to self isolate;

Contact tracers will:

  • call you from 0300 013 5000
  • send you text messages from ‘NHS’
  • ask you to sign into the NHS test and trace contact-tracing website
  • ask for your full name and date of birth to confirm your identity, and postcode to offer support while self-isolating
  • ask about the coronavirus symptoms you have been experiencing
  • ask you to provide the name, telephone number and/or email address of anyone you have had close contact with in the 2 days prior to your symptoms starting
  • ask if anyone you have been in contact with is under 18 or lives outside of England

Contact tracers will never:

  • ask you to dial a premium rate number to speak to us (for example, those starting 09 or 087)
  • ask you to make any form of payment or purchase a product or any kind
  • ask for any details about your bank account
  • ask for your social media identities or login details, or those of your contacts
  • ask you for any passwords or PINs, or ask you to set up any passwords or PINs over the phone
  • disclose any of your personal or medical information to your contacts
  • provide medical advice on the treatment of any potential coronavirus symptoms
  • ask you to download any software to your PC or ask you to hand over control of your PC, smartphone or tablet to anyone else
  • ask you to access any website that does not belong to the government or NHS

  1. During the coronavirus pandemic, our staff have been working hard to ensure that all patients who need urgent care – not just those with coronavirus – have been able to get it. To avoid unnecessary contact, some non-urgent appointments and surgeries have been postponed and others delivered differently using technology.

 

We will continue to ask patients to attend face-to-face services only when it is really necessary, and where it can be done safely without putting our patients, the public or our staff at greater risk of catching coronavirus. Where possible, appointments will continue to be offered using remote services such as a video or phone consultation.

If you feel unwell or have hurt yourself, you can still get the care and treatment you need. It’s vital that if you’re having a potentially life-threatening medical emergency, such as a heart attack, stroke or really bad flare up of asthma, you contact the NHS.

 

You might be worrying about a mole that’s changed shape, or grown larger, and think you need to contact your GP.

Everyone in the NHS really appreciates people taking pressure off services for conditions that can be safely managed with over-the-counter medicines, and taken care of at home.

But it is crucial that for anything else that you do not risk life or wellbeing – contact NHS 111 online or by phone, get in touch with your GP, visit an Urgent Treatment Centre, or for emergencies go to A&E or call 999.

 

Update 28/04/2020

  • Coleman Health Centre, Derby (from 8.15 until 1.15 pm Monday to Friday)

Update 06/04/2020

Any urgent dental needs outside of normal hours – search on the 111 website

Crich Medical Practice is so far coping, we have had staff and GP’s self isolating but the good news is that GP covid19 testing has started, so if a member of staff, or their family, gets symptoms then we can have them tested which means they don’t need the 14 day isolation and can get back to work sooner.

Update 25/03/2020

Please click on the following link to see Ivy Grove’s excellent website full of information about Coronavirus, (Ivy Grove is based in Ripley and is one of the practices we work closely with)

Update 23/03/2020 

Our dispensaries at Holloway and South Wingfield are under a lot pressure, please allow 72 hours from requesting your repeat prescription. The Dispensary Staff are working flat out so please be patient with them, and also only order what is necessary. The dispensaries will soon be dispensing out of the windows to patients (rather than patients coming inside the surgery) to protect themselves.

Update from the GP’s 18/03/2020

It’s a difficult time for us all with the unknown coronavirus events that are evolving daily. Fundamentally, we have to keep the 3 GP surgeries functioning, coronavirus does not stop all other important health care that we provide to patients, but we need to minimise the risk of patient to patient spread and to GP’s, nurses and staff.

We are having to react and adapt, the phrase ‘unprecedented’ is used a lot with the coronavirus, but unfortunately GP Practices around the world are having to put unpopular plans into action to try and keep a level of medical care going, and your patience with this is appreciated.

So what are we currently doing ?

  • All online appointments have been blocked (this affects other aspects of online activity unfortunately) – this stops patients booking in to see a GP and coming into the surgery without being triaged first.
  • Signs are up at Holloway and South Wingfield, they are open for our dispensary patients to collect their meds as usual (but don’t go if you have a fever, cough, or shortness of breath, or if you or someone in your household is self isolating)
  • Patients are not allowed into Crich reception without speaking to a GP on the phone first and being invited in.
  • Patients can still ring in, the Receptionists will sort out a telephone appointment with a GP or a Nurse
  • Please don’t ring to ask questions about Corona Virus, please use the 111 website

Welcome to Crich Medical Practice

This website is provided to introduce you to our practice. We cover a wide area and in order to be more easily accessible to patients we have branch Surgeries at Holloway and South Wingfield as well as our main surgery at Crich. Branch surgeries are dispensing and patients living in these rural village areas will be able to obtain their prescribed medications from those premises. You may attend whichever of these surgeries is most convenient to your need, however, it helps us to work more efficiently if you can attend the same one wherever possible.

The doctors work in partnership and they all provide general medical care, maternity, contraceptive advice, minor surgery, health promotion and child health surveillance services.

Serious injuries ie suspected fracture, concussion etc should be dealt with at the Accident & Emergency dept at either Calow or The Royal Derby Hospital.   Minor injuries such as cuts, bruises, minor lacerations etc can be seen at either Whitworth or Ripley Hospital.

Out of Hours

If you require urgent medical assistance, please dial the NHS 111 service, free of charge who will be able to assess you and direct you to the most appropriate point of care for your particular needs.
