PARKVIEW MEDICAL GROUP
A WARM WELCOME
to our online website
DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC, PARKVIEW MEDICAL GROUP
IS OPERATING A TOTAL, TELEPHONE FIRST, TRIAGE SYSTEM
Our surgeries are currently in a lockdown situation. We are however providing telephone consultations for NON SPECIFIC COVID-19 related illnesses in the first instance and should a face to face consultation be needed, patients will be asked to attend the surgery at a specifically appointed time.
All of our surgeries are operating a screening process and before access is allowed, visitors will be asked health questions relating to the COVID-19 outbreak and a temperature reading will be taken at the point of entry.
Our telephone lines are currently being operated under the standard core hours for each practice and may we ask you to bear with us if there is a delay in answering your call, there is an understandable significant increase in telephone contact.
REPEAT MEDICATION - Weoley Park and Grange Hill surgery patients are still able to request their repeat medication needs via the Prescription Ordering Department on 0121 726 1395 and again there may be a delay in answering due to the volume of calls. Heathview, Wilnecote and Dosthill patients should order their prescriptions in their usual preferred method. Whenever possible we are sending prescriptions via the Electronic Prescription Service, direct to patients' chosen pharmacies.
Should you have any COVID-19 related questions, NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service which will indicate if you need medical help and advise you what to do.
The NHS 111 service is constantly being updated and is the recommended contact point for all matters relating to COVID-19.
The latest Government and NHS guidance requires :
14 days whole household isolation for anyone with symptoms, which is a persistent cough or fever (temperature 37.8C or over)
Wider social distancing for all, including no mass gatherings. This social distancing applies even more specifically for pregnant ladies, those over 70 and those with long term medical conditions.
Finally, this necessary and responsible action is taken for the benefit of all patients and our surgery teams. Our patients may be assured that anyone using the telephone consultation service will receive our closest attention.
