5pm Thursday. The phone system has just been re-connected and normal service is resumed.
There is still quite a bit of catchup admin work outstanding and we are expecting a lot of prescription requests that might have been delayed during the down-time so we will be busy on Friday. If you have an appointment however, please come as planned. I’d like to thank Julie our Manager for orchestrating our response; our brilliant nurses and admin team for working effectively and efficiently without notes, and Dr Palin, who was our mobile Doctor today working at multiple sites seeing patients and generally holding the fort.
8.50am 28th Nov Thursday
Despite Openreach’s 14 engineers best efforts we are still without service on our phone lines which WON’T be fixed until late this afternoon. We may have the ability to dial out to mobile numbers beforehand and access to the NHS computer system (still down)
A divert from our main phone line to a mobile number in-house is going thro at the moment and will give limited access to us by phone but it will be engaged much of the time.
If you have an appointment today you can still come down and we will do our best to help despite the lack of IT.
If you need an appointment pls keep trying the Practice Number or call 111 who also have access to us. You can also come down to the surgery (beware the traffic system is clogged in the area presently). We can’t promise you an appointment there and then as we have some critical staff off-site so they can access the IT system elsewhere. We are running a paper appointment system just for those who need seeing today. If your condition does not require you to be seen today please don’t try to contact us at the moment.
Please don’t forget that the NHS Choices website is a great resource for help with the self care of many common conditions and your local Pharmacist is an excellent point of first contact.
