New ways of working.

We are concious that the way we operate now is different from before with more use of telephone and video consultation.  We have found during the pandemic that these have been effective and most patients appreciate the efficiency of these methods.  These mothods help to keep you and our team as safe as possible.  We are however seeing patients face to face when clinically appropriate.  Please see a note from our regional commissioning group about the new ways of working.  https://www.buckinghamshireccg.nhs.uk/public/your-health/coronavirus-changes-in-gp-care/

Wearing of Face masks - exemption certificates.

  • As a practice we are not able to issue excemption certificates for the use of face masks.
  • Government advice on the use of face coverings can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-safer-travel-guidance-for-passengers#face-coverings . This link includes a list of reasons why someone might be exempt from wearing a face covering.
  • It is sufficient for an individual to self-declare this an excepmtion. Practices are under no obligation to provide letters of support for anyone who does not fall under the list of exemptions but considers them to have another reason to be exempted.
  • Patients needing to travel on public transport in London may wish to print-out a self-exemption card which has been approved by TfL. This can be displayed on clothing or a lanyard. It can be found here: https://tfl.gov.uk/campaign/face-coverings
