COVID-19: Our surgery plans and how this will affect you
You will know that Covid-19 has meant a marked difference in the way the practice operates. We have done this to minimise face to face contact between patients and staff, limit the spread of the Covid-19 virus and keep our practice team and patients as well as possible.
We aim to continue to give you the best possible care at this difficult time.
Please note that eConsult is 'switched off' from 6.30 on Friday evenings until 12.01 on Monday mornings. The 111 out of hours service is available when the practice is closed.
Welcome to The Chineham Medical Practice
Our aim is to provide an exceptional standard of patient care in an efficient manner within an environment which is welcoming to patients and supports the development of staff.
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
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. To ensure you see the right clinician our receptionists need to know if you have an urgent medical problem or an ongoing condition. Please help us by answering their questions and anything you say will be treated confidentially.
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.
Primary Care Network (PCN)
The practice is part of the Whitewater Loddon Primary Care Network, together with Clift Surgery and Whitewater Health. The Primary Care Network has recruited a range of additional staff, such as physiotherapists, clinical pharmacists and community connectors to improve the support available to patients.
