Noticeboard

All 5 GP Practices in Winsford have been running the Red Clinic for suspected Covid-19 patients for a couple of weeks now. We would like to thank everyone for their support in this, particularly the car park marshals, Friends of Winsford Town Park and the Town Council.

There are some really important points we would like to make:

  1. This is NOT a drop-in clinic. If you feel you need to see a doctor because of possible covid-19 you need to access NHS 111 (preferably on-line), or your GP practice if you cannot get through. The Red Clinic is by appointment only.
  1. If you are invited to attend the Red Clinic you should drive there with windows closed, indicate to the marshals that you are for the Red Clinic, and stay in your car with your windows still closed until you are advised to do otherwise.
  1. If you are invited to attend the Red Clinic you should ONLY drive to the clinic and back home again.
  1. The Red Clinic is NOT a testing centre, do not ask to come to this clinic just because you want a test.

 

out of hours

When We Are Closed

NHS 111

This service will operate from 6.30pm - 8.00am on weekdays and 24 hours at weekends and on Public Holidays.

To access this service, ring 111 where an assessment will be made by an experienced Triage Nurse. You will then be either given advice over the telephone, a home visit, an appointment at Northwich Infirmary NEW Centre or Leighton Hospital, or referred to a Community Pharmacist or other services.

EMERGENCIES

If you have an emergency and if a Doctor is not available immediately, please make use of the EMERGENCY AMBULANCE SERVICE by dialling 999.

For urgent problems during surgery hours, please telephone 01606 544644. Surgery hours are between 8.00 am and 6.30 pm on Monday to Friday. In an emergency outside the surgery hours, please telephone 111 between 6.30 pm and 8.00 am, or the surgery number where you will automatically be put through to ‘Out of Hours’.

NHS Direct

In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call NHS 111 on 111 to speak to a triage nurse. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.

Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
