Welcome to Thurleigh Road Practice

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) OUTBREAK - Update: 20/03/2020

Dear Patients

As the situation regarding COVID-19 evolves, we are constantly reviewing the way in which we are delivering our services in order to best care for our patient.

The recent issues have impacted on the availability of our own NHS staff (both administrative and clinical) and NHS staff nationally; who you will appreciate, are all all in contact with some very vulnerable patients.

We would like to update you on the current necessary changes to our provision of care.



We are currently limiting unnecessary visits to the surgery as we know that there is an increased risk of contracting any illness from a healthcare setting.

As such, the clinical team are calling ALL patients to discuss their needs over the phone. We have found that the vast majority of things can be dealt with successfully over the telephone/video consultation. The telephone consultations can be made online (as if you were making a routine appointment however this will be phone based) or via reception.

We would like to reassure you that if your needs are deemed to be medically urgent after the initial phone call, you will be brought in for a face to face examination by a clinician.

We are also encouraging patients to utilitise Dr Link (see below) as a means of booking a telephone appointment.


Home visits:

Clinicians will be triaging through the home visit requests as normal and will undertake a visit should it be clinically appropriate and the problem be medically urgent.


Collecting items:

Prescriptions, blood tests and referrals will still be available to collect however, a receptionist will greet you at the front and pass you the required forms through the door.



We are currently receiving a very high demand for prescriptions. We are working incredibly hard in order to try and process these in a timely manner but we would really appreciate your help with this by:

- Ordering prescriptions in good time (e.g. once you have one week left of your medication)

- Nominating a local pharmacy so that your prescriptions can be sent electronically

- Not over ordering

- Only ordering medications that you actually need

- Buying what you can from over the counter

Prescriptions can be ordered online (via patient access) or by emailing waccg.thurleighroadpractice@nhs.net


Self isolation

We would like to re-iterate that if you have any symptoms that are suggestive of COVID-19 (a new continuous cough or a fever >37.8), please do NOT come to the surgery. Please follow national guidance and self isolate.


If you have any concerns/questions about your symptoms and would like to consult with a medical professional, please access 111 online for further advice.



Social distancing

Please bear in mind the government’s advice regarding social distancing. We appreciate that some aspects of this will be difficult however we would really encourage you to follow this in order to protect yourselves and other people.


We will continue to update this page when further changes come to light.

We really appreciate your patience and understanding at this challenging time. Please rest assured that we are doing our best to support all patients through this current period.

National Shortage Vaccination

Please be aware that there is currently a nationwide shortage of pneumococcal vaccines and therefore there is a limited supply available.

Are you a Carer or do you know someone who is?

At Thurleigh Road Practice, we are keen to know which of our patients are Carers. If we don't know already, please let us know on your next visit as there may be additional support and services available to you. Please speak to our Reception team or your GP/Nurse.
There are also a number of online resources available to you.

Who is a carer?
A Carer is someone who provides support to family or friends who could not manage without this help. This could be caring for a relative, partner or friend who is  ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or substance misuse problems. All the care they give is unpaid.

Anyone can becore a Carer. Carerrs come from all walks of life and can be any age: some are children and young adults. Many feel they are just doing what anyone else would do in the same situation looking after their mother, son, or best friend and just getting on with it.
