Coronavirus Information:



The NHS in Cheshire and Public Health England (PHE) are extremely 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 risk to the general public is moderate. If you have arrived back to the UK from mainland China, Thailand, Japan, Republic of Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia or Macau within 14 days, follow the specific advice for returning travellers.


 


Anyone who has travelled to China or places listed above in the last 14 days and develops symptoms of cough or fever or shortness of breath, should immediately:


 



  • Stay indoors and avoid contact with other people as you would with the flu

  • Call NHS 111 to inform them of your recent travel to the country


 


Information for the public is available at gov.uk/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.


 


The risk of being in close contact with a person with coronavirus or contaminated surfaces is very low at the current time, as members of the public who have visited Wuhan, Hubei province, China are currently in isolation.


 


Testing of suspected coronavirus cases is carried out in line with strict regulations. This means that suspected cases are kept in isolation, away from public areas of the hospital 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.

Welcome to Neston Medical Centre

We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything.

            Different General Practice   

    Access to GP appointments has become a national problem often taking several weeks. Practices can’t either find or afford more Doctors. The Answer is to work differently.

Six years ago we CHANGED.

   We don’t say that we can treat everyone immediately but we can offer a much quicker and more efficient service than we could previously.

   Essentially we make much greater use of the phone and we have introduced Nurse Practioners to treat minor illness.

   The process begins when you contact the surgery and speak to reception. You don’t need to tell us why you are ringing, if you can we can better advise you on how to proceed. You may need to organise blood tests or see one of our practice nurses or nurse practitioner. If you have pulled or strained something or hurt your back you can be referred directly for Physiotherapy.

   Should you wish to see a GP we will take your phone number and then ask you the best time to ring you back. The last thing we want is for you to be hanging around the house waiting for a call. Most patients give us their mobile numbers. We find 60–70% of patients can be sorted out straight away. Patients ring to discuss their progress, recent hospital appointments, arranged blood tests or just asking advice for themselves or their family. However if you need or wish to be seen we can arrange a mutually convenient time the same day or the day ahead.

   Each clinician has their own work stream as we value continuity.

We have put a lot of time and effort into the practice to try to be as precise.

you can check surgery times and letting us know what you think of us on this web site.

Patients registered with a West Cheshire GP practice are also able to access routine GP and nurse appointments via the General Practice Extended Hours service.

To book an Extended Hours appointment, call 0300 123 7743 or speak to your GP practice receptionist.  See the appointments tab for a detailed description of what is available and where.

Partners in Care

Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.

Save Time - do it online!

GP online services gives patients the option to book appointments, request repeat prescriptions and view their GP records, using their computer, tablet or smartphone rather than having to phone or visit the practice.

If you are not already registered for GP online services let a member of the practice team know you would like to register.

There is easy access into the medical centre at the front of the building. If you are unable to manage the door, please ring the bell located at the right-hand side and our staff will be pleased to assist you. We also have a large disabled toilet with wheelchair access.
