Patient Notice:

Thank you all for your support for us at Brooklyn Medical Practice as we continue to respond to the coronavirus pandemic. We have made huge changes to all aspects of how we work, and our staff have been fantastic in working with us through these. We are gradually opening up our services, whilst still trying to protect the more vulnerable in our community as well as our staff.

We are using far more technology such as video consultations when clinically helpful, to ensure we are not unnecessarily putting patients at risk by bringing them in. Please ensure we always have up to date mobile phone numbers if available.

We continue to provide childhood immunisations and other essential injections, dressings where essential, cervical smears, and other clinical activities the GPs deem important.

We have a new system in place for long-term conditions reviews, and are sending out a pre-review questionnaire to patients (electronically or letter) and this will be followed up by a telephone review or face-to-face review where appropriate with the nurse. This is under continuous review and seems to be working well, and keeping patients safe.

Some other brief points (in line with national advice)

 

  • We will not be issuing prescriptions for simple medications like paracetamol, unless it was already on repeat prescription.
  • We will not be giving bigger supplies of medication because of this crisis. If we did this would result in significant supply problems for our colleagues in pharmacies.
  • We will not be issuing “sick notes” (Med 3 forms) for people affected by coronavirus, self-isolating and so on. These are not required and we do not have sufficient capacity to do this. Please see the following link; https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-to-employers-and-businesses-about-covid–19/covid-19-guidance-for-employees

 

Finally, we have really appreciated the support that you have continued to give us. This really makes a difference to all of us who work at the practice, and we will of course strive to look after all those who need us.

 

Prescriptions:

We are currently asking patients for 72 hours notice in order for us to issue prescriptions.

 

Our latest CQC Report:

“We reviewed the information available to us about Brooklyn Medical Practice on 22 May 2019. We did not find evidence of significant changes to the quality of service being provided since the last inspection. As a result, we decided not to inspect the surgery at this time. We will continue to monitor this information about this service throughout the year and may inspect the surgery when we see evidence of potential changes.”
