UPDATE WITH REGARDS TO THE NATIONAL LOCKDOWN IN RESPONSE TO COVID-19 (Coronavirus)  26.3.2020

Following the updated guidance from the government and NHS England we have implemented further changes at the practice.

**WE HAVE  SUSPENDED ALL ONLINE BOOKING OF APPOINTMENTS ***

  • If you are wanting to book an appointment please DO NOT attend the surgery, please contact us by telephone or via E-consult on our website. However, we urge patients to only phone us if you have an URGENT issue that will not wait.  Please note that the hospitals have closed off acceptance of referrals and only very urgent referrals and potential cancer referrals can be made. 
  • E-Consult is a great way to access services at the Practice,  whether its an administrative question or for medical advice.  It can also be used to obtain self help advice.   It saves you time waiting on the phone.  You can access it by clicking on the banner above,  it is simple to use and all queries will be dealt with by the end of the next working day.   Try it! 
  • This situation will be reviewed  in May 2020 when the national lockdown situation is reviewed by the Government.  These measures are to protect the NHS from becoming overwhelmed and to slow the spread of Coronavirus.
  • Please also be aware that all appointments will be booked as telephone consultation, these are for URGENT medical matters only.   Please ensure you are available to answer your phone.  If deemed necessary, the GP will book a face to face appointment.
  • The receptionists have been told to ask screening questions to every patient, please answer these truthfully and accept the advice you are given if directed to NHS 111.
  • You can help us by ensuring we have your up to date contact details and asking our receptionists about online access so you can see your results and request prescriptions.
  • Any sick note requests can be sent via: ghccg.patient.queries.lindleygrouppractice@nhs.net
  • PLEASE BE AWARE NO CLINICAL QUERIES WILL BE ANSWERED OR APPOINTMENTS BOOKED VIA THIS EMAIL ADDRESS.
  • Prescription requests will be taken over the phone on a temporary basis, but we also ask patients to use the online facilities where possible.
  • Complaints -  This is an extremely busy time for us whilst we concentrate on the response to Covid19 cases and other urgent medical matters.  We hope to provide the best service we can to patients as always.   We also recognise that things can go wrong and patients feel the need to complain.  We would like to advise that patients are still able to raise concerns/complains in the current situation, and we will try our best to manage these as quickly as we can, however please note that responses may be delayed.

Please bear with us at this time and understand our phone lines will be extra busy.
Where possible make use of the other resources we have e.g Online Access and urge you not  to contact us about hospital queries.

For Huddersfield Royal Infirmary queries please ring 01484 342000. 
Calderdale Royal Hospital please ring 01422 357171
or for Locala MSK (Musculoskeletal) queries please ring 030 3330 9994.

Requests for letters for cancelled travel

The surgery is receiving requests for travel cancellation letters from people who want to cancel their trips due to the risk of contracting Coronavirus. Please click here  https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice  for advice regarding travel to specific areas of the world. Depending on your specific travel policy, most travel insurance will cover cancelled trips to countries which the Government advise not to travel. 

***** A letter from the GP is NOT required  *****

In addition, please be advised that the surgery is unable to provide letters to travel insurance companies supporting requests for refunds by by patient, who without any significant medical illness, cancel their travel plans.
