WELCOME TO CWMBRAN VILLAGE SURGERY
GOVERNMENT LOCKDOWN ANNOUNCEMENT
We have heard today that Wales will go into a “Circuit Break” lockdown as of 6pm Friday 23rd October.
We want to reassure our patients that the surgery will continue to be open 8am - 6.30pm continuing with the current services.
We do though ask our patients to not attend the surgery if they are suffering from any of the symptoms and to get a test as soon as possible and self isolate. We also ask that you only attend the practice if you have an appointment or have been asked by a GP or member of staff to attend.
We want to reassure everyone that doctors are still seeing patients but to enable the practice to safely do so and adhere to the social distancing rules we can only allow a total of 8 patients in our waiting room at one time. Please use the queuing system in place and once in the surgery there is a one way system.
Prescriptions are still being processed as normal (48hrs processing time) Please do not order any earlier than your medication is due, do not stock pile or over order your medication. We ask all our patients to reduce the footfall and exposure in the surgery and order their prescriptions by:
*MY HEALTH ONLINE
*EMAIL at - firstname.lastname@example.org uk
*EXTERNAL PRESCRIPTION REQUEST POSTBOX
*PRECRIPTION LINE - Housebound ONLY
Thank You and please keep safe
