Dear Patients
We are currently experiencing a high level of sickness throughout the Lander Medical Practice team. Where possible, members of staff will be working from home.
As you can imagine this will have an impact on the general medical services we will be able to offer currently. Please expect a delay for non urgent enquiries. Our reception team are working hard to accommodate your requests so please be patient with them, they can only offer what is currently available.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and hope to be up and running with a full compliment of staff soon.
Best wishes.
The Doctors

Many thanks

Did you know you know you can get help and advice by calling 111 or go online at 111.nhs.uk?

You may not need to go and wait in our busy emergency department and could be directed to a minor injury unit which will be quicker and closer to home. Only dial 999 for an ambulance in a genuine, life-threatening emergency, for example:

 

Chest pain / breathing difficulties / heart attack

Stroke

Severe bleeding

Severe allergic reactions

Severe burns or scalds

Serious head injuries

Major trauma such as a road traffic accident or a fall from height

 

If you have called for an ambulance, please do not ring again asking for a time of arrival. Only call again if:

 

The patient’s condition worsens or you no longer need our help.

 

The call handlers must prioritise speaking to the most seriously injured and unwell patients.

 

If you don’t think it’s a serious or life-threatening emergency:

 

Call your own GP. Even if you are in Cornwall on holiday, you could get a phone or video consultation with your doctor at home.

Go online at 111.nhs.uk or call 111 to get expert advice and be signposted to where you can get the best and nearest care for your needs.

Ask a pharmacist for advice – they’re experts in treating minor health issues like colds, urinary infections, stomach upsets, aches and pains.
