Do you care for someone with dementia?
Barrow upon Soar Methodist Church
are hosting a regular drop in at the church to have a chat and a cup of tea every 2nd and 4th Monday of the month between 2-4pm. All welcome.
(Starts Mon 8th Feb)
We are no longer closing at Lunchtime from Monday 12th October 2105 except on Thursdays when we close at 12.30pm
To help with winter pressures on all services especially the hospitals, we are adding 9 more doctor appointments each day from December 7th till January 31st. These are for urgent on the day booking only.
Remember our nurses are trained to deal with minor illnesses and can prescribe medication to deal with this. They are highly trained Urgent Care Nurses who are experienced in their field. If your condition is more than the nurse can manage she will pass you on to a GP that same day if necessary. The receptionists are trained to signpost patients to the best clinician to deal with your complaint.
Dr Dayah is no longer seeing patients at Barrow Health Centre. Dr Simpson and Dr Duffy will continue to provide a service of general practice as normal. Appropriate arrangements have been put in place to ensure continuity of care and adequate appointment availability.
RED EYE. Should you be experiencing difficulties with extreme sore red eyes, floaters etc we now have a joint facility with local ophthalmologists who will take referrals from our surgery to ease eye casualty waiting times for any of these issues. Please book an appointment with a nurse who will assess and refer where appropriate should you be experiencing any of these difficulties.
IF YOU GET THE ENGAGED TONE PLEASE RE - DIAL AGAIN.
We will review this system in a months’ time.
We will keep you informed of any further changes.
