Prescriptions will be managed electronically, they will be sent to the pharmacy nearest to your home, unless you notify us otherwise. Paper prescription requests should be posted or delivered to the practice’s post box. Medical certificates will also be managed electronically. Please look at our Website and FB page for updates. If you have COVID 19 Symptoms please follow national guidance.
Important information about the coronavirus (COVID-19)
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 on nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need medical help and advise you what to do.
Use this service if:
- you think you might have coronavirus;
- in the last 14 days you've been to a country or area with a high risk of coronavirus;
- you've been in close contact with someone with coronavirus.
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Call 111 if you need to speak to someone.
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 catch the virus by touching contaminated surfaces if they do not wash their hands.
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. Patients can be reassured that their safety is a top priority, and are encouraged to attend all appointments as usual.
Everyone is being reminded to follow Public Health England advice to:
- 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.

Improving our care for you
“Saving you time and stress, by providing you the care you need, when you
Launching 1st October 2019
At Warrior Square Surgery, we are actively looking for ways to improve the patient
experience. Based on patient feedback, one of the key areas which we have been working
on includes the effectiveness of our appointment booking system.
To help us to better manage our appointments, we are implementing a new system called
Clinical Triage. Anyone calling the surgery for an appointment will be asked by a member of
our trained receptionist team for some details about their call. The details of your call will
be shared with the GP carrying out the Clinical Triage and will be used to help us to best
deal with your issue. As NHS employees, all staff working in the surgery are bound by a
duty of confidentiality and will only provide this information to the GP.
The GP will review the information you have given to the receptionist and either call you
back / send you a text message / book you an appointment or arrange / organise what is
most appropriate to meet your needs. For example, if your issue is that you require a
medication, the GP will organise a prescription on your behalf. The GP may also organise for
you to have an appointment with a member of the clinical team which may be a GP, an
Advanced Nurse Practitioner, a Paramedic Practitioner, a Clinical Pharmacist or a
Physiotherapist depending on your issue.
We realise that there is a high demand on the telephone lines and are looking at innovative
ways to manage this. We have started a text service called AccuRx which allows us to
inform you about your appointments and results etc. This is a new service which is different
from our other text messaging service MJOG which we use to send our patient reminders.
It very important that we have your correct mobile phone number as we will send you a
text unless you have notified us to the contrary. If you change your mobile number, please
contact the surgery as soon as possible so that we can update your details.
We are also looking into online consultations and Patient Access to assist you to book your
appointments and will continue to explore new ways of working to ensure that we are able
to manage our patient appointments are effectively as possible.
