Dr Shelly Retirement
Dr Shelly will be retiring after 20 years at Stokewood Surgery, and latterly as our senior partner. Dr Victoria Lazell will be joining us and will take on the majority of his patients from August. If you wish to pass on any good wishes to Dr Shelly for his retirement, please email these to us or pop them on the comment form, as we will be collating them into a book for him. Please send us your comments/good wishes by 21st July although any we receive after that date we will be sure to pass on.
Face masks will still be required in Stokewood Surgery after 19th July for the foreseeable future whilst the covid virus remains in circulation. Staff will continue to wear one around the building and clinical staff will remain wearing PPE. We have a high proportion of clinically vulnerable people attending the premises and it is important that we keep the environment as safe as possible and try to keep our staff well so that they may provide services to the patients.
Stokewood Surgery - restricted access
The surgery remains open and telephone lines are open during our normal working hours. Please do not attend unless you are free of covid-19 symptoms. You will be asked to confirm this at reception and may have your temperature checked.
To minimise the risk of contamination, and decrease visitors to the surgery, we are no longer giving out repeat prescriptions in paper. You should nominate a pharmacy to receive the repeat and go directly to them to collect your medication. If you have internet or email access, please register for our online service or email your request to: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you decide to have your medication from a different pharmacy than your nominated one, please let us know and this can be amended but please do not change this without good reason to avoid confusion and extra workload for our staff.
Patients with appointments should attend alone unless they are under 16 or require a carer. Anyone accompanying a patient will be asked to remain outside the surgery to help us provide a safe environment for our patients and staff.
