Access to the Fountains Health Building
The doors are closed to the Fountains Health building. This is to reduce the spread of Covid-19 through people coming in who don't absolutely have to. The Practice is still open, however we have now taken the decision to also close our reception desk during the pandemic. Please be assured that we are still open and operating. If you need to speak to anyone at the practice please ring as normal on 01244351000. We would really appreciate it if our patients considered using alternative methods like NHSApp and patient online services for requesting repeat prescriptions and e-consult for non-urgent queries. This will reduce the footfall to the practices which will keep everyone safe.
- If you have spoken to a clinician and have been booked in for an appointment, please use the buzzers by the front door to gain entry.
- If you have been asked to bring in a sample, please use the buzzers by the front door to gain entry. Empty sample pots are available at the welcome desk on the ground floor. Please put full sample pots in the post box by the front door wherever possible - make sure that the lid is tightly fastened, your details are written on it, and put it in a plastic bag.
- If you need to submit a prescription request or hand in a letter please use the post box by the front door.
- Lift access to the building will be affected. If you need to use the lift to get from the car park to the building, please use the George Street lift and cross the courtyard for step-free access to the building. We apologise for this access impairment.
We appreciate your patience and co-operation during this time.
