We are still open and here for you

Please be assured, Hattersley Group Practice is open and appointments are available to all patients. Due to COVID-19, how you access the practice will be different at the moment, this is to prevent the spread of the virus. To ensure staff and patient safety, we are continuing to control numbers within the practice by using an intercom system. Please ring the intercom button once, we know you are waiting and we are working as fast as we can to ensure that you can speak to a member of the team in a timely manner. Please remember to wear a face covering, unless exempt, and socially distance at two metres, where possible. Further information on how to access the practice can be found here.

Our aim is to provide our patients with the best possible healthcare services that are of the highest standard. As a patient, you will receive care that is responsive to your needs, and we will work with supporting organisations, where necessary, to achieve this. We pride ourselves on putting our patients first and in doing so, we will always take the time to listen and respond openly and honestly every time.

You can book an online appointment by downloading the NHS App on a smartphone or using patient access.

If you require a repeat prescription and to comply with social distancing, please use the NHS App, patient access or email the practice. Online services can provide patients with real time updates on their prescription requests. Please do not contact us to check if your prescription is ready. Please ensure you have nominated a pharmacy so your prescription can be sent electronically to the pharmacy of your choice. Pharmacies can also text patients when their prescription is ready to collect to avoid queues outside.

For those patients who are not self-isolating, you can also post your prescription in the foyer outside of the waiting room. You cannot request acute medications via online services – please email the practice for these.

If you know you need to self isolate due to the current COVID-19 outbreak and your employer has requested a note, please follow this link and NHS 111 will provide the necessary certification. If the service is busy please keep trying.

If you have received a 12-week shielding letter, this is your sick note for your employer. Please note, if you live with someone who is high risk, you do not require a sick note, you do however need to socially distance. If you need a sick note for other reasons than COVID-19, please fill out a request by clicking on 'Medical advice'.

Out-of-hours, if you require urgent but not life-threatening medical assistance that cannot wait until Hattersley Group Practice re-opens, please call NHS 111. If you have a life-threatening medical emergency, please dial 999.
