Fond Farewell to Dr. Giblin


Glemsford Surgery is very sad to share that Dr. Mary Giblin is leaving us for pastures new.  Dr. Giblin will be very sadly missed and we know that our patients, friends, and carers will join us to wish her all the best in the future.  Dr. Giblin has been a Partner at Glemsford Surgery since 1999 and has worked tirelessly to provide excellent care over the years.  We thank her for her years of service to Glemsford and our neighbouring villages and wish her all the best for the future!



In line with national guidance, antibody testing (to see if you have had Coronavirus) will be rolled out in Suffolk and North East Essex in a safe and phased way.  It has begun with NHS hospital staff.  We will keep you updated as to when this test is available to different staff and patient groups.  Meanwhile, please may we request that you DO NOT ASK YOUR GP about availability.  This will help us to help you with all other urgent calls.  We will make an announcement as soon as we can.



IMPORTANT ADVICE FOR OUR PATIENTS AND CARERS


CORONAVIRUS (COVID_19)


Updated 19th March 2020 - for more information please click on the link below to visit our dedicated "Coronavirus Advice" page by clicking on the tab "Coronavirus"


The Public are advised to stay at home (self-isolate) without any testing for COVID-19, regardless of travel history or contact with confirmed cases, if they have:


A new continuous cough OR


High temperature of 37.8 degrees centigrade or higher



To reduce your chances of catching COVID-19


and reduce pressure on your local GP practice


during this busy time, appointments will be


carried out over the phone unless there is a


clinical need for you to come into the practice.




This will help minimise risk while continuing


to ensure people get the care and advice they


need.



ONLINE APPOINTMENT BOOKING


Please DO NOT book a GP appointment using the ONLINE SERVICES if you suspect you have contracted Coronavirus.  Please call NHS 111 instead.



Like the common cold, coronavirus infection usually occurs through close contact

Temporary Registration

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
