UPDATE : Tuesday 20th October 2020
Due to restrictions underpinned by Covid19 regulations and staff sickness, please note.... we are providing emergency and urgent care only at this time
Only patients with pre-booked appointments will be permitted to enter the surgery.
Sidley Medical Practice is required to take all appropriate measures to protect patients and staff.
After a period of lower COVID-19 cases and deaths, the number of cases are now rising rapidly and probably exponentially in significant parts of all 4 nations.
Today, the Chief Medical Officers for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have reviewed the evidence and recommended all 4 nations of the UK should move to COVID-19 Pandemic Alert Level 4 (COVID-19 epidemic is in general circulation, transmission is high or rising exponentially), rising from Alert Level 3.
At this time telephone contacts to the surgery for patient care are 30% higher than in February 2020.
Online communications with email, letters and consultations continue as well.
We can only work during this exceptional time by recognising that we are now having to assess all care by full telephone triage contacts by our nursing, doctors and administration teams.
We are facing overwhelming clinical need and will continue to manage those who need urgent and essential care.
We may not always be able to ring back the same day, so please offer as much information as you can
so that we can check the enquiries and help prioritise concerns.
We may ask you to ring back in following weeks as the situation changes.

Flu Vaccination Campaign 2020
This year we will be contacting you to make arrangements for when you should be coming to the surgeries for your flu vaccination.
Please bear with us as the program is substantially larger than previous years, up to 5500 patients will be offered vaccination this year and we have to plan for social distancing.
We have contacted many patients and arranged appointments and started our first large flu clinic Saturday 27.09.20 which was attended by over 700 patients
Thank you to those supporting the clinic and arriving at times allocated.
There are further large Saturday flu clinics upcoming in October and also appointments during the working week - please contact the surgery if you have a question about arranging an appointment or home visit in the near future.
