For patients concerned that they may have coronavirus or may have come into contact with someone who has, the NHS 111 online service has created coronavirus pages that tell patients what they should do based on their particular circumstances.
These can be accessed at: https://111.nhs.uk/service/covid-19
From 1 August we shall be using AccuRX, a secure text service, to contact our patients about screening, monitoring, test results, prescriptions, etc.
The message is sent directly from the doctor or nurse to the mobile phone number we hold on our records.
This provides instant communication from the clinical team to our patients.
IT IS IMPORTANT WE HOLD UP TO DATE CONTACT DETAILS FOR YOU, SO IF YOU DO CHANGE YOUR MOBILE NUMBER PLEASE MAKE SURE WE ARE ONE OF YOUR FIRST CONTACTS TO KNOW.
If you need medical attention over the weekend please dial 111, which is free of charge from any phone.
The Minor Injuries Unit at Wycombe General Hospital will be open, as will A&E at Stoke Mandeville.
It is extremely helpful if patients advise us if they no longer need their appointment. The easiest way to cancel a booked appointment is to respond to the reminder text by simply replying CANCEL. This will automatically cancel your appointment. Please do not include any additional message in this text.
