Please see the 'Latest News' page for up to date information regarding Coronavirus.
If you develop a high temperature (above 37.8C), a new persistent cough or lose your sense of smell or taste, we advise you to stay at home and self-isolate for 7 days from the start of your symptoms. If you live with anyone else, THE REST OF YOUR HOUSEHOLD must stay at home and self isolate for 14 days from when the first person shows symptoms.
If your symptoms worsen or last longer than 7 days please contact 111 online service: https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19.
If you do not have internet access please call 111.
DO NOT attend the surgery unless you have been asked to come in by a doctor or nurse
If you are asked to come to the surgery for an appointment, please come alone - do not bring anyone with you. Anyone who is not actually attending an appointment themselves will be asked to wait outside of the surgery. This is to protect our vulnerable patients and staff by limiting the amount of footfall.
From 10.06.20 we are asking all patients above the age of 2 years old who attend the Surgery to wear a face covering. Face coverings can be purchased online from a variety of online retailers. For guidance on how you make your own face covering, please click here. For guidance about children wearing a face covering, please click here
ONLINE CONSULTATION PORTAL
De Montfort Surgery are able to offer consultations without you needing to attend the surgery by using our online consultation portal.
To use the service for the first time CLICK HERE
If you previously used the service LOGIN HERE
We will not be able to process your query if your are NOT registered as a patient with De Montfort Surgery. Registering with the portal DOES NOT register you as a patient of the practice. To register as a patient, please see the information on the "New Patients" tab at the top of the screen.
If you have used the portal before and are already registered for online consultations, please login here
You can use the Online Consultation Portal to:
submit a medical query to a GP
request medication and query medication you receive on a repeat basis
submit an administrative query such as chasing up referrals or asking if your test results are back with our Admin Team
Our online consultation portal is totally secure, backed by NHS Digital and available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (queries will only be answered during office hours)
All medical queries will be seen by a GP and they will respond and advise via a secure online message back to you (providing you have fully registered to use the system) usually within 4 hours.
Suspension of Online Appointment Booking Services
Due to government and NHS guidelines relating to Coronovirus we are temporarily suspending all online direct booking of appointments via SystmOne. This will enable us to screen all appointments before booking, helping to keep you and our practice staff safe.
You can still book an appointment or request medication through our ONLINE CONSULTATION PORTAL above
If you already have an appointment with the surgery, this will now be done by telephone with a GP / PRACTICE NURSE RINGING YOU instead of you coming in to the surgery. Do NOT come into the surgery unless you have receive a call advising you to do so.
We appreciate that these changes maybe disappointing for patients, but as part of our contingency planning for Coronavirus we are trying to minimise the number of patients attending the practice as our priority is to keep patients and staff safe. We would like to thank you for your continued support and we appreciate your cooperation at this time
