PARKING AT ROTHERFIELD SURGERY:

We realise that parking can be difficult at times, but we would like to politely remind patients that access to Court Meadow (at the top of the car park) must be clear at all times. 

In addition, please refrain from parking alongside the fence adjacent to the field, as this land is not owned by the partners of the practice and you do risk receiving a parking ticket from the owners of the land.

Mass Vaccination Sites/Hubs

Sites in the surrounding area have now come live and you may be contacted via letter or telephone. 

You may receive a letter inviting you to make an appointment at one of these sites and if you are able to travel to the site you may wish to make an appointment as you may get the vaccine sooner than if you wait for a call from the surgery.  You do not have to attend a mass vaccination site - this is your choice.

If you decide to book an appointment please be assured that all the information and details of your vaccination will be sent to your GP in due course so your records will be updated.

If you decide not to book an appointment at one of these sites we will still be contacting you when we have appointment that is available for you.

 

Attending the Surgery

Due to the increase in positive COVID cases the surgery doors will now be locked, but we are open.  A member of the reception team will speak with you through the window and ask you COVID related questions and take your temperature before allowing you into the building.  We have not taken this decision lightly, we want to protect staff and patients.  With the door locked please knock on the window to gain someones attention.  We appreicate your co-operation during this difficult time.  Remember if the door is locked during opening hour we are OPEN. We will now be asking patients to wear face masks/coverings when attending the surgery. We thank you for your co-operation and understanding.

 

eConsult will be going live on 8/4/2020, to find out more Patient facing video with subtitles
