Notice to all Patients
We have been advised by NHS England that due to a national shortage of blood tubes, we are unable to carry out any routine blood tests for the time being. If you already have a booked appointment for a blood test after the 30th August, this may be cancelled by us, unless it is considered urgent.
PLEASE DO NOT TELEPHONE THE SURGERY REGARDING THIS. We will update you when we know more, but it is likely to be several weeks before we can resume a normal service.
We are here to help
COVID 19 cases in our area remains high, fortunately symptoms in patients who are vaccinated are in general less severe. This means that the majority of patients do not need hospital treatment, but are treated by our Practice Team.
Please be mindful of this if you are booking any routine appointment
The team at THC remain fully committed to providing your care through this highly pressured time.
In line with current Government guidance patients are required to continue to wear face coverings in all healthcare settings. The safety of you, our patients, is still our priority and we need to continue to take more precautions than shops, pubs, schools etc. due to some patients being more vulnerable than others.
Our surgery is having to work a bit differently to how it used to, and the changes you can expect are
As we are still in the Covid pandemic, the NHS recommends that we triage or phone back every patient who wants advice from a nurse, doctor or other healthcare professional.
The doors at the Seymour Road entrance are open for pre booked appointments or for the collection /drop off of samples only.
The doors at the Prospect Place entrance remain closed.
The reception desk (located at the Seymour Road entrance) is not yet open to book appointments or deal with enquiries. If you need an appointment, have a general enquiry, need medical advice or treatment; please phone us first on 01225 435757or visit our website trowbridgehealthcentre.co.uk for more information.
If you feel you need to attend the surgery in person we are keen, as we are sure you are too, to avoid transmission of infection and so to ensure social distancing we are closely monitoring how many patients are in our building including sitting in the waiting room.
You continue to be our priority. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your patience and understanding.
