The team at Weaver Vale is currently experiencing a high volume of calls from people who need urgent help and advice. The high rates of community transmission of the Covid virus, coupled with the growing numbers of people being admitted to hospital, mean the whole of the NHS across the North West region is under pressure.
For this reason, it is taking us longer than we would like to respond to calls and we are having to ask people who have less urgent health needs to wait a bit longer for an appointment. We are continuing to prioritise urgent cases.
If your condition is not as urgent, we would ask that you look at the other options available for accessing NHS services e.g.
- Following self-care advice where you can from www.nhs.uk
- Using your local pharmacy for expert help and advice for every-day conditions
- Using online services where you can request repeat prescriptions via the NHS app or your practice patient online service
- Seeking support and advice from NHS 111 online to direct you to the best service for your needs if you’re not sure what to do
Thank you for your support and your patience.
Car Park Cameras
Car park cameras were installed in the health centre car park on 27th October 2020 and are now live. Please ensure that you enter your car registration in the tablets provided, these are located around the health centre. If you need any assistance please ask a member of staff.
Some patients have expressed concerns about the installation of the cameras. We want to ensure that the car park is used for patients and staff using the health centre and continues to be free of charge if you are visiting the health centre for your care needs. The cameras are operated by a private company and the health centre does not have any financial interest.
Closed circuit television (CCTV) is installed at the practice premises for the purposes of staff, patient and premises security. Cameras are located at various places on the premises, and images from the cameras are recorded.
