During the COVID-19 pandemic we have been operating a Total Triage service for all requests, whether for an appointment or other type of request, clinical or administrative.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, NHS England and NHS Improvement have supported all GP practices in England with the rapid implementation of a ‘total triage’ model using telephone and online consultation tools.
Total triage means that every patient contacting the practice is first triaged before making an appointment. We will be asking you to speak to the most appropriate clinician on the telephone who can help you as quickly as possible. It is possible for the doctor or nurse to do your consultation via video call but if the doctor feels that you need a face to face appointment this will be arranged for you.
Total triage is important to reduce avoidable footfall in practices and protect patients and staff from the risks of infection
Managing your health at home
To maintain social distancing and prevent the spread of the coronavirus, you are advised to stay at home as much as possible. While you are at home it's still easy to get NHS help and support using your smartphone, tablet or computer.
The Health at Home webpage has information letting you know how to:
- contact your GP
- order repeat prescriptions
- manage long-term conditions
- maintain your mental and physical wellbeing
If you need an NHS service, try to do it online first. If you cannot get what you need this way try asking a friend or family member to help you, or speak to your GP surgery on the phone.
