You will by now have heard the measures that the Government has announced to protect us all from coronavirus.  Without immediate changes to our way of life, Nobles Hospital will likely be overun with the sick and the dying within a matter of weeks.  Probable death toll is still being calculated, but provisional estimates are higher than we anticipated.

 

Children are unlikely to become seriously unwell with the coronavirus.  However, during the peak of infections it is possible that we will have no ability to send them off island for treatment in an emergency.  The only sure measure is for them to avoid infection.  Elderly people and those with other health problems are more likely to die from coronavirus.  However, young, healthy people have also died from the infection.

 

Please follow the government advice on https://covid19.gov.im  If you have any sort of cough or temperature, even a very mild one, your whole household must self-isolate for 14 days.  Call 111 for advice.  If you arrive on the island, you must isolate yourself for 14 days.

 

Anyone not following these rules is likely to be arrested and prosecuted.

 

Even if you are well, you must take social distancing very seriously.  Do not visit your friends and relatives.  Don't go where people are likely to gather.  Remain in your homes and gardens as much as possible, unless you need to go out for essential supplies.

 

You must wash your hands regularly, or use hand sanitizer gel.  Wipe down surfaces regularly.  This will kill coronavirus and is a proven way to keep yourself safe.

 

If we work together as a community we will keep our island safe.

Appointments ( posted on Mar 19, 2020 )

All GP appointments will now be triaged by telephone consultation. We will try to manage the problem over the phone, however you may be asked to attend if it is absolutely necessary.

 

This is to reduce the risk of infection in the waiting room, but also between doctors and patients.

 

Booking appointments via patient access has now been suspended.

 

Please be patient when trying to contact the surgery, it is an extremely busy time.

 

Many thanks

Emailing prescription requests ( posted on Aug 28, 2018 )

Please note, that with effect from Monday 27th August 2018, prescriptions will no longer be accepted via email.

 

In future you will either have to:

 

1.  Apply for "Patient Access", this allows you to order prescriptions, book/cancel appointments, view results etc via your mobile device or computer.  This can be requested at the surgery, we will need to see some photographic ID and can be done whilst you wait.

2.  Go onto the Finch Hill website (www.finchhill.im) and request via "prescriptions" tab.

3.  Ask your pharmacist to order the items for you.

4.  Come into the surgery in person or post a request.

Policy on Investigations & Treatment ( posted on Jan 15, 2018 )

When we request investigations for our patients, they are always part of a carefully considered management plan aimed at clarifying a medical problem as quickly as possible.  On rare occasions we will carry out investigations for a consultant to whom we have referred our patient and who requests the investigation in writing.  We remain responsible for all the tests that we request and are obliged to follow up the results and take action where appropriate.  For that reason, we are unable to carry out investigations for other doctors whom we have no interaction.  This includes family doctors and specialists in other countries.

 

Similarly, should a doctor with whom we have no interaction request a particular medication for a patient, it is his/her responsibility to prescibe it.  If we ultimately prescribe for a patient in such circumstances, we will take over medical management to allow us to monitor the effects of such treatment.

Patient Access ( posted on Mar 28, 2017 )

 

You can now view your medical history online, order repeat prescriptions and make GP appointments. 

 

See our Patient Access page for more details.

Social Media ( posted on Mar 28, 2017 )

 

The partners at Finch Hill Health Centre welcome comments and suggestions from their patients and these can be submitted via our website or in writing to the Practice Manager.

 

If you have a comment or complaint about the surgery we encourage you to report this through the correct channels, not via social media such as Facebook.  The practice always investigates complaints and responds to patients in a timely way.

 

The partners will not hesitate to remove a patient from the surgery list if they are found to have made libellous statements or defamatory comments about the surgery or a member of the surgery staff.  The legal definition of defamation is:

 

"any intentionally false communication, either written or spoken, that harms a person's reputation; decreases the respect, regard, or confidence in which a person is held; or induces disparaging, hostile or disagreeable opinions or feelings against a person."

 

Thank you
