IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM WOODVIEW MEDICAL CENTRE - AFTER 19.7.21
Although the government has announced certain changes in restrictions from 19th July 2021 the message is still to remain cautious. Woodview Medical Centre remains committed to providing services to our patients in a covid safe way whilst also protecting our staff to ensure that we may continue to be able to provide a service to our patients. We will therefore continue to offer a telephone triage service where patients will be seen face to face should that be clinically indicated. We will continue to provide Treatment Room services such as Blood tests, dressings, ECGs, cytology screening, immunisations etc. We remain "open" as we have done throughout the entire pandemic, just in a different way to pre pandemic times.
It is important that our patients continue to seek medical advice for serious conditions of if they develop symptoms that cause concern. We also strongly encourage patients to come for their screening and immunisations.
As many of our patients are seriously unwell or immunocompromised etc we will also be following guidance and requesting all our patients to wear a facemask or face shield unless clinically exempt. We shall be restricting the numbers in our Waiting Room but as many of those patients who cannot wear a face mask or face shield are often those who are most vulnerable, once booked in, those patients may prefer to wait outside in order to reduce their exposure to other patients in the Waiting Room where ventilation is at a minimum. We thank you for your co-operation in helping to keep us all safe!

All our registrars are fully qualified Doctors but are working towards a specialism (such as being a General Practitioner) or have recently qualified so require support from those with more experience. All the supervising Doctors have been specially trained to support our junior doctors.
