THE SURGERY REMAINS OPEN BUT WE ARE TRIAGING EVERY REQUEST FOR A FACE TO FACE APPOINTMENT.
From today we are telephoning patients who would normally have been making a face-to-face appointment.
In order to reduce the risk of spread of Covid-19 to vulnerable patients, staff and contaminating the Surgery, we will be trying to manage as many medical issues as possible over the telephone.
If you were going to come into the Surgery to make an appointment please telephone instead.
We appreciate that the telephone lines will be busier than normal but we will do our very best to speak to every patient who needs to be spoken to.
If you are waiting for a call back from a clinician please DO NOT ring the surgery again as this blocks a phone line.
Patients who do need to be seen face-to-face will still be seen.
Please use our on-line facility for ordering repeat medications if possible, and otherwise email or ring for prescription requests that you cannot order online.
We are keeping this website bennfieldsurgery.co.uk up to date with surgery information, it may change on a daily basis.
Thank you for your understanding.
The Partners, Bennfield Surgery.

The Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) is working with NHS England to deliver the system on behalf of the entire NHS.
