'Living with COVID' Government Response

We don't yet know what the guidance will be for primary care in response to the new 'Living with Covid' reponse, therefore until this is confirmed, please can you continue to:

 

-Wear your mask in the surgery

-Keep distance when in the surgery 

-Arrive no longer than 5 minutes before your appointment time

-Avoid attending for routine care when you have COVID

-Tell us if you have COVID symptoms or are COVID positive when you have an appointment

 

That way we can keep all patient safe - including those who cannot be vaccinated or whose immune systems are weak.

Phone lines down

We are aware that our phone system is currently not working. Engineers are working hard to fix the problem which has affected the hospitals and lots of GP surgeries across the area.

If you have a face to face appointment booked please still attend the practice.

If you have a telephone appointment booked there may be a delay with your call but the practice will still contact you.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

AquAid - The Africa Trust

Here, at Nottingham City General Practice Alliance, we are aware that keeping our team hydrated will aid them to perform at their very best throughout the work day. As a result, we decided to invest in watercoolers from AquAid.

Our unique relationship with AquAid has also given our company the opportunity to help those less fortunate than ourselves, because with each purchase an automatic donation is made to The Africa Trust.

These funds are used to build ‘Elephant Pumps’ - a modified version of an age old Chinese rope pulley system. One such pump is currently being installed in Africa on our behalf and it will be a much needed source of clean and fresh drinking water for many.

 Our organisation’s name will be proudly displayed on our well and we look forward to adding a photo and a letter of thanks from the villagers to our site in the near future.

 To date AquAid have built over 8,000 such Elephant Pumps across parts of Liberia, Malawi, Mozambique and Zimbabwe; and have donated in excess of £17 million to charity.

Face coverings to be worn when visiting the practice

Although the government guidelines on face coverings will change from 19 July 2021 it is our priority to ensure that all patients and staff are safe when in our practice. To maximise everyone's safety, we will continue to ask all patients and visitors to wear a face-covering when they come into the building. The face-covering must cover your nose and mouth. If you are unable to do this, please speak to the reception team. Thank you for your cooperation.
