Welcome to Two Rivers Medical Centre

Welcome to our practice website. We aim to provide all of our patients with a comprehensive range of healthcare services covering one-off problems to longer term illnesses. Feel free to explore the site and find out how you and your family can benefit from our personal and professional approach to healthcare provision.

Patient Leaflet


CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

For patients concerned that they may have coronavirus or may have come into contact with someone who has, the NHS 111 online service has created coronavirus pages that tell patients what they should do based on their particular circumstances.  These can be accessed at: https://111.nhs.uk/service/covid-19

APPOINTMENTS:

All appointments to be over the telephone whenever possible, telephone triage appointments are available to book online. You can use our automated phone system (option 1) or online access to cancel any upcoming appointments.

PLEASE NOTE: due to staff absences we are now closed between 1pm and 2pm. All online services are still available.

The following appointment types have been suspended with immediate effect (those already booked will be contacted):

  • Travel vaccinations
  • Ear syringing
  • Home blood pressure monitoring
  • Long term condition reviews (medication will still be issued).  Your review may still take place over the phone if required

MEDICATION:

All medication will be issued on an electronic prescription (sent straight to your pharmacy) - if you haven't nominated a pharmacy, please update this on your online record or call reception.

Isolation Note for your Employer

Use this service if you have to stay at home because of coronavirus and you need a note for your employer.

Coronavirus (Covid 19) Individual risk assessments

We are receiving many requests from patients about their individual risks if they were to contract coronavirus. Some are being asked to contact us by their employer.

As a practice with over 26,000 patients, many with a long-standing health condition, we simply cannot provide a risk assessment for each individual and it would affect our capacity to provide care to our patients.

 The following government website has information about potential risks.

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-guidance-on-social-distancing-and-for-vulnerable-people/guidance-on-social-distancing-for-everyone-in-the-uk-and-protecting-older-people-and-vulnerable-adults

You can check your record online to see what health conditions you do have to compare against this list.  You will need to register for this here:

https://www.nhs.uk/using-the-nhs/nhs-services/the-nhs-app/

Each individual needs to make their own risk assessment and plan their lives accordingly.

Your employer and the employee should consider these risks and make reasonable adaptions following the National Guidance.

We are unable to provide occupational health advice to patients or their employers.  Some larger employers will have occupational health advice adviser in place to help an employer to make such decisions.

Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.


Partners in Care

Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
