Update from The Blackdown Practice

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we have needed to change quite dramatically how we deliver healthcare across the Blackdowns… and we have had to do it very quickly.

Different types of appointments/consultations

It can be hard to know what to do if you're unwell when the advice is not to go into the surgery in person. However, it's still important to get medical help from us if you need it and we can now offer, in addition to a telephone consultation, on-line or video consultations. We are also still seeing patients for face to face appointments when it is needed and safe to do so.

Some routine clinics have continued, for example patients who require regular blood tests because of the medicines they are taking, cancer screening, and children who still need their vaccinations. As national restrictions are changed, other more routine appointments will be reintroduced. For those people who usually access our services at Churchinford, we are constantly reviewing when to reopen the Churchinford site.

Please continue to keep safe.
