Appointments
Appointments can be made by telephone or at the reception desk.  Please make a separate appointment for each person.  If you find you are unable to attend please cancel as soon as possible so that the appointment can be offered to someone else

Test Results
Please contact the surgery to obtain the results of tests or x-rays. For reasons of confidentiality test results can only be given to the patient themselves or to the parent or legal guardian of children under 16 years of age.

Telephone Advice
If you require a telephone consultation with a doctor or nurse, please tell the receptionist who will arrange for the doctor or nurse to ring you on the contact details you provide.  Telephone consultations will usually take place after the end of each surgery or clinic

EU Exit

EU Exit
As the government prepares to leave the European Union (EU Exit) on 31 October, all information for patients from the CCG will be published and updated as and when the situation may change.

Medicines, medical devices and clinical consumables and workforce

Please continue to order your repeat medicines and medical devices and take your medicines as normal. It is important you don’t order more medicines than normal. If you do, it may mean that other people won’t be able to get their medicines.
 
National measures are in place to ensure that clinical and non-clinical goods and services that the NHS needs to function to continue to be available and that the NHS is able to maintain its staffing levels following EU Exit. Under UK legislation, qualifications of EU staff will continue to be recognised in the UK.
 
The government and Public Health England are also working together to ensure that vaccines will continue to be available as needed after the UK leaves the European Union.
 
Reciprocal care
 
Following EU Exit, if you are travelling to the EEA (European Economic Area) or Switzerland on or after 31 October, please ensure you take out comprehensive travel insurance.  As the situation with the using the EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) to receive reciprocal medical care in the EEA and Switzerland may change depending if we leave the EU with or without a deal. Visit https://www.ehic.co.uk/ for the latest information.
 
EU nationals living in the UK will still be able to access NHS care after the 31 October but EU visitors will be charged for accessing NHS care when new charging regulations come into force on 31 October.
 
If you are concerned or have any questions, please speak to your GP or Pharmacist or you can email at EUexit@sthelensccg.nhs.uk
