We are currently working hard to deliver the Covid vaccinations at the Practice, as a joint effort with the Three Spires Medical Practice.
We have the eConsult facility on our website for your use for non-urgent matters, or you could sign up to use our online services.
Thank you for your patience with us at this extremely busy time.
We would ask that you please do not contact your GP surgery for routine appointments or check-ups if at all possible. Alternative ways you can seek medical advice and treatment include the NHS website, and your community pharmacy, who can offer expert information and provide medication for many conditions.
We continue to be available for urgent appointments for such things as pneumonia, high fever and appendicitis. If your condition is life-threatening always call 999. For urgent but not life-threatening you can always contact 111, if your usual GP is not available.
You have an important part to play in helping us deliver the COVID vaccine to the priority groups:
- please don’t contact the NHS to seek a vaccine, we will contact you;
- when we do contact you, please attend your booked appointments;
- and please continue to follow all the guidance to control the virus and save lives.
The Lander Medical Practice is promoting the PRINCIPLE Trial
COVID-19 has affected the lives of everybody within the UK and the rest of the world. Finding safe and effective treatments has been the drive of researchers at the University of Oxford and right now, you have an opportunity to help. PRINCIPLE is a national priority trial to find treatments for COVID-19. We are looking for volunteers aged 65 or over, OR aged between 50 and 64 with an underlying health condition.
To be eligible to take part, you must be unwell with Covid-19 symptoms, and have had them for less than 14 days. No face to face visits are needed.
Please help us fight COVID-19 by visiting the PRINCIPLE website: PRINCIPLE TRIAL
Have you been asked to send photos to your Doctor?
We have tried many different options for this over the past few months and have found that the best for sending your requested photos to us is by using the eConsult facility on our website. This will be our preferred method and is entered directly into your computerised record when you submit them.
However, if you are unable to access eConsult we are able to accept your photographs via this email address:
Please make sure you enclose the patient name, address and date of birth if you are using the email function. This option will take slightly longer to enter your photos into your records. Please try to avoid sending as a large file.
If you encounter any problems uploading your 'photos, please telephone the Practice on 01872 243 700.
Patient Information for Attending Appointments
We are still seeing patients at both Lander and Threemilestone Surgeries.
If you have an appointment at either surgery, we would be grateful if you could attend wearing a face covering, ie protective face mask or scarf.
If you are attending Threemilestone Branch Surgery, please ring the doorbell to gain admittance. Please do not arrive early for your appointment and queue outside.
We hope these measures will help you feel safe and protected when you are being seen.
If you have developed any symptoms suggestive of Covid-19, please do not attend for you appointment. Please call us first.
