FACE MASKS

The rule for the wearing of face masks has not been relaxed in Health Service buildings. Please can you wear a face mask if you have to visit the surgery for an face to face appointment with the GP or Nurse.

If you have a valid medical reason for not wearing a mask a face shield should be worn.

The Surgery will not supply masks to Patients, and you may be refused entry.

Thank you for your co-operation.

 Prescription Collections:

The Collection of prescriptions is now within the surgery foyer at the new window. Please observe that 1 person only is allowed in the foyer at a time.

At this moment in time there are no prescription collections at Greenodd. We will keep you informed as to when this will begin again.


Collection times are daily (from 25th January) :

General Data Protection Regulation

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new law that determines how your personal data is processed and kept safe, and the legal rights that you have in relation to your own data.

CHAPERONES POLICY

It is our policy to respect the privacy and dignity of our patients. As part of some consultations a full examination may be required. All patients are entitled to have a chaperone (someone who will stay with them during the appointment) present for any consultation, examination or procedure where they feel this required or it will help them feel comfortable.

Wherever possible, if you think it would be helpful for one of our trained staff members to act as a chaperone then we would be grateful if this request could be made at the time of booking an appointment to ensure an appropriately trained member of staff is available.

If you would prefer to be examined at another time or by a health professional of the same gender as yourself please let us know and we will do our best to comply with your wishes.

You are welcome to have a family member or friend present to provide support if you wish.
