Important Coronavirus Update

From Monday 16th March the Colchester Medical Practice has made the decision to suspend Open Access Surgery in the mornings

Instead patients should telephone between 8.00am and 10.00am to book a telephone consultation with a clinician in light of the changing situation regarding coronavirus. If necessary a timed appointment at the practice will be allocated during that morning.

Phone lines will open at 8am

Please do not arrive to sit and wait. YOU WILL BE ASKED TO RETURN HOME.

Please make sure that the Practice has your up to date contact details for you.

If you have any concerns regarding the coronavirus symptoms please use NHS 111 on line tool www.111.nhs.uk/covid-19

These changes have been made to minimise the risk of infection amongst patients and staff

Thank you for your patience and consideration during this time. We will endeavour to continue to provide a high quality patient care.

Please share this message with family and friends so that as a community we can work together to protect our most vulnerable patients.
