Covid-19 Letter to Patients

Important information about the coronavirus (COVID-19)

The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has put an increased demand on primary care services in Wakefield.

As a result of this, and in line with this week’s government’s guidelines about staying at home to stop the spread of the virus, patients should not attend their GP surgery without an appointment and should make contact by telephone – but only when necessary.

If you do have a confirmed face-to-face appointment with a clinician, you may be asked to see them at a neighbouring GP practice to the one you would usually attend.

This is because some practices will be closed or reorganising themselves to effectively cope with increased demand and suspected coronavirus (COVID-19) patients.

These changes will begin to take effect from Tuesday 31 March.

The location at which you will be seen will always be communicated to you by your clinical team who you will always be able to contact via your usual GP practice number.

As you will be able to appreciate, this is an unprecedented time so your cooperation, understanding and patience are greatly appreciated.

Please continue to keep up to date with the latest advice around coronavirus on the NHS website: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/ 

GP CARE WAKEFIELD

GP Care Wakefield is an extended out of hours service owned by all Wakefield GP Practices to cover the entire population of the Wakefield district.

It operates from 6 – 10 pm Monday to Friday, and 9 – 3pm Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays.   Telephones will be automatically diverted during operating hours.  Outside of these times please telephone 111 or ring back during normal surgery hours if your need is not urgent.

Following triage of your problem, if deemed appropriate the service will offer you a GP appointment at Trinity Medical Centre or Pontefract General Infirmary.

There needs to be shared consent in place for the service to be able to provide safe care therefore please ensure you give explicit record sharing consent when accepting an appointment with the service.  Patients who prefer not to give shared consent cannot access this service.

The service is not available for routine matters such as repeat prescriptions. 

In addition to the above, during 6pm & 8pm Monday to Friday, and 9am & 1pm on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays, patients can be seen for routine annual review of Heart Disease, Diabetes, COPD, Asthma & Stroke but only if you are well controlled and your condition is stable.  Other routine nurse care includes:

  • Blood tests 
  • Routine ECG (not chest pain)
  • Spirometry
  • Review of contraception pill
  • Repeat depo injection
  • Smears
  • B12 injection
  • Removal of sutures and clips
