CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

The covid-19 vaccination booking method has been revised. All appointment booking is now led by Harrow Health community services on basis of age and clinical priority. You will be receiving a text message to book yourself into an available clinic. If you do not have a mobile number linked to your clinical records you will receive a call by Harrow Health community services on your landline in due course.  We have three vaccine sites running in Harrow namely, The Tithe farm Sports Club, Byron Hall and The Hive. Arrangements are being made to vaccinate our patients in care homes and our housebound patients. We respectfully ask that patients DO NOT call the Pinn Medical centre about their vaccination date, as you will be contacted in due course. Please see the example below on how the booking procedure works.  

VOLUNTEERS REQUIRED

If any of you are under 70 years old, and have no other long term health conditions, we would welcome you as volunteers to help run the COVID vaccination sites.  Please go to https://pinnpatients.org/news/covid-vaccination-centre-volunteers/ for more information on this.

THE PINN MEDICAL CENTRE  SERVICES DURING COVID CRISIS

The Pinn has been asked by the CCG to set up a GP Access service for Non Covid patients during this unprecedented crisis from 8am Saturday 28th March.

From Tomorrow morning we will be closed to walk in patients other than acutely ill patients who cannot safely be redirected.

We continue to remain available to our own patients for initial telephone consultations and booked face to face consultations where necessary.

Unregistered patients will now be booked in to a GPAC appointment having been clinically triaged.

These changes are temporary during this Covid crisis and the CCG has given it written reassurance that they are committed to reopening walk in cervices at the Pinn once his crisis is over.

COVID SYMPTOMS

Patients with  Covid symptoms or requiring any information on Covid  should consult the government website GOV.UK Patients who feel they cannot manage their symptoms safely at home should contact 111 on line or by telephone who are able to arrange a consultation if required. If unable to get through then call the surgery to arrange a telephone consultation with a clinician. The clinician will decide whether you need to be seen and will give instructions on how this can be done with the necessary safety precautions .This may require you to attend a local Covid hub.

NON COVID SYMPTOMS

Non Covid medical conditions that cannot wait please call the surgery for a telephone consultation with a clinician who will make arrangements for you to be seen if necessary.

ROUTINE APPONTMENTS

Requesting routine appointments should be postponed if possible for the next few weeks online appointments are currently not available

WALK IN APPOINTMENTS

These are available for urgent problems if unable to get through on the phone. Wherever possible, walk -in patients will have their mobile phone numbers taken and asked to wait outside the building until they have had a telephone consultation with the clinician

HOME VISITS

These should be only done when essential and requests for home visits will also have a telephone consultation prior to the visit

IMMUNISATIONS

At present, only immunisations for under 2 year olds will continue as delaying these can pose its own health risks

BLOOD TESTS/INVESTIGATIONS/ DRESSINGS/ OTHER INJECTIONS

These are to be kept to a minimum so only book these if you have been told by a clinician that they cannot be postponed

PRESCRIPTIONS

Please request prescriptions electronically or by email - information about this has already been texted to you and is available on the website.  Prescription requests can be taken by telephone only if you are unable to use other means as it uses up phone lines. A box is available outside the surgery front door to leave paper prescription requests.

We thank all our patients for their understanding and cooperation in using the services responsibly.

We will update this information if there are any major changes to our services
