Important Information for Patients
Posted on 28 May 2020
A message from your Surgery.
After a long discussion and negotiations with NHS Rotherham CCG, NHS England, and our Patient Participation Group, amongst others, a joint decision has been made to utilise Whiston Medical Centre as the COVID-19 Hub, with effect from 1st June 2020.
This will provide a single site for patients with symptoms suggestive of COVID-19 and patients without symptoms will continue being seen in a safe environment at Brinsworth Medical Centre without risk to the health, safety and wellbeing of both patients and staff alike.
Telephone and video consultations will continue as they are now, and any patients that need to be seen in person will be offered an appointment at the Brinsworth site, by their consulting clinician.
We appreciate that some of you may struggle with travelling beyond our Whiston site. All efforts will be made to ensure your healthcare is not compromised and your needs are met.
Whilst this is not an ideal situation, and has been organised at relatively short notice, it is necessary for the continued safety and wellbeing of patients, staff, and clinicians.
We thank you for your understanding during these challenging times.
