Guidance for patients requesting exemption letters about wearing Face Coverings

Please click on the link above for guidance about wearing face coverings. Eastview Surgery are unable to provide individual risk assessments or letters for patients who are, or feel that they should be, exempt from wearing a face mask. 

Stay alert

We can all help control the virus if we all stay alert. This means you must:

  • stay at home as much as possible
  • work from home if you can
  • limit contact with other people
  • keep your distance if you go out (2 metres apart where possible)
  • wash your hands regularly

Do not leave home if you or someone you live with has any of the following:

  • a high temperature
  • a new, continuous cough
  • a loss of, or change to, your sense of smell or taste

Check the NHS website if you have symptoms

Please be patient when calling the surgery

We are getting more phone calls during this time and the staff at Eastview are working extremely hard to deal with all your queries.

We are on limited staff due to social distancing, so it may take longer than normal to answer your call.

We ask that during this time you use the general queries line as sparingly as possible and call only at certain times:

Thank you for your understanding

Do you know?

We now do e-Consults. You can find access to this on the home page of our website or Click here.

Due to the national spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have postponed all routine appointments, reviews, checks and bloods.

If you think you need an appointment, please call and you will be called back and triaged by a clinical member of staff.

All pre-bookable appointments have been removed for the time being. This is for the protection of our patients and our hard working dedicated staff.

For appointments please call: 0151 920 7255 

Alternatively please complete an E-Consult. You can access this from the home page of our website.

DO YOU NEED MEDICATION?

Please do not bring your paper medication requests to the surgery.

For a temporary basis only we will be taking medication orders over the phone. We will take your order over the phone after 2pm and ONLY if your medication is due. 

We are NOT allowing stockpiling!

Contact the usual pharmacy you use and ask them to be your nominated pharmacy or let our reception staff and they will update this. Your medication can then be sent electronically to that pharmacy. This prevents you having to visit the practice in person and keeps us all safe.

We would encourage you to sign up to patient online services so you can order your medication online. Ask a receptionist or see below for further information.

You do not need to visit the Surgery to order your repeat medication.

Sign up today to use Patient Online Services. 

You can order your repeat medication online. For further information visit our Patient Online Services page.
