Noticeboard

Coronavirus

The NHS and Public Health England (PHE) are extremely well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The current risk to the general public is moderate.

You can help too. Germs can live on some surfaces for hours. To protect yourself and others:

  • Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze.
  • Bin the tissue, and to kill the germs, wash your hands with soap and water, or use a sanitiser gel.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.
  • If you have arrived back from an affected area within the last 14 days and develop symptoms of cough or fever or shortness of breath, you should immediately:
    - Stay indoors and avoid contact with other people as you would with the flu
    - Call NHS 111 to inform them of your recent travel to the country

This is the best way to slow the spread of almost any germs, including Coronavirus.

Extended Access Hub

From 1 April 2019 patients registered with GP surgeries in Corby will have access to up to 150 more appointments per week as NHS Corby CCG introduces a new Extended Access Hub. The additional appointments will mean patients can access General Practice services between 6.30pm and 8pm on weekdays and slots will be available at weekends, Bank Holidays and over Christmas and Easter at Woodsend Medical Centre.

Corby’s new Extended Access Hub will allow patients to book routine appointments with a GP or other healthcare professional, including GPs, nurses, physiotherapists and health care assistants, seven days a week. The service will be tailored to meet the needs of the Corby population.

To access this service, call your own GP practice where receptionists will be able to access and book evening, weekend and Bank Holiday appointments where appropriate. 

Patients needing healthcare when their practice is closed should continue to call NHS 111.


Staff Training

Members of the practice team take part in the Protected Learning Time initiative. This means that the practice may be closed on one afternoon per month for training purposes. During this time, patients may use the services of NHS 111 or The Urgent Care Centre, Cottingham Road, Corby
