Shipston Medical Centre Statement regarding Coronavirus
23rd April 2020
In view of the continuing global pandemic and the unprecedented strain on the NHS we are having to change the way we provide healthcare in order to prioritise care to those in need.
We are trying to do as much as possible remotely with telephone and video consultations to try and protect the most vulnerable, so please not visit the Medical Centre without a pre-booked appointment.
We have taken the decision to prioritise our efforts to focus on 'urgent clinical need' only and routine work will be suspended for the time being. This is to ensure we can continue to provide safe care to our community as needed.
We will be cancelling pre-booked routine appointments for everything but essential care. Urgent concerns should be raised with us at the time the occur, allowing us to triage and reduce risk to patients and only see face to face consultations when it is safe to do so. It may be helpful to view this video to help explain the approach we are taking:
Our staff are working hard to ensure we continue to support our community and we will ensure medications are supplied safely.
We appreciate this is a very different way of working but it is necessary to ensure we can provide the best care in very challenging times.
With the wonderful community we have we will need to all work together to support those in need. Our experience so far is that patients have been understanding about the pressure we are under and we appreciate your ongoing support.

We strongly believe in providing comprehensive preventative medicine and health promotion for the whole of our practice population.
