During the Coronavirus crisis, THE SURGERY TEYNHAM will run its services as usual to help and support our patients and the NHS. Patients will be able to access the services contacting the surgery via telephone and ordering medication by writing down the needful and putting them in prescription box that placed at the entrance or email us. Please be aware there can be a delay in answering the phones due to large volume of calls. Thank you for your understanding.
Due to the current Coronavirus pandemic we have had to implement changes in order to keep vital services running for you.
All patients will now be telephone triaged, and seen in the Practice only if deemed necessary by a clinician. This means that all online bookable appointments are suspended until further notice.
Prescription requests are not accepted over the telephone, we encourage those of you with online access to order online, and those without to either post your request or put it through our letterbox at the front of the surgery. We are unable to issue extra supplies of medication or issue medication early.
Routine chronic illness management appointments will be cancelled for the time being. We will endeavour to reintroduce these as telephone appointments in the future, if appropriate. We will contact you by telephone, text or letter to confirm this.
Thank you for your patience.
