Booking Of Appointments During Coronavirus (COVID-19) Outbreak

 

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in the UK we are changing how we book all face to face appointments.   

As you are aware the practice uses eConsult and patients are advised to seek advice via this service. Please visit the services section on our website for further information and access to the eConsult service

The online booking appointment system has been temporarily suspended at the surgery and we ask all patients to use either eConsult or if necessary, ring the practice and ask to speak to one of the doctors who will assess you as best they can and advise if you need to come to the surgery.

 

For any general information on coronavirus please visit www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19

If you develop a  new continuous cough or a new fever (you feel hot to touch on your chest or back) please do not come into the health centre.

IMPORTANT DENTAL HEALTH INFORMATION DURING COVID-19

Notice to patients seeking dental care during the Covid 19 Pandemic

 

If you need urgent dental care:

            * If you are in pain or in need of support please phone your usual dental practice. This may be because you have severe toothache or a dental infection, or you have noticed other changes inside your mouth such as a white patch, red patch, a lump or an ulcer that won’t heal. All dental practices should be able to provide advice and management to you over the phone. This includes giving advice, guidance and prescriptions, which you can collect from your local pharmacy.

            * If you do not have a dentist, please call the Cheshire & Merseyside Dental Helpline on 0161 476 9651. They will assess you and provide advice over the phone which may result in a remote consultation with a dentist.

            * If your dentist or the dentist you have been referred to from the dental helpline  think that you need urgent face-to face treatment, they will refer you to a designated dental clinic where you will be assessed and any requisite emergency dental treatment undertaken.

Please note that any treatment is limited due to risk involved in most procedures

 

The Liverpool University Dental Hospital is also operating an Emergency Dental Care Service. To access this service, please call the Dental Emergency Helpline on 0151 706 5307 / 5309 Monday to Friday 8.30am – 4.30pm and Saturday 8.30am-12noon. Specialist clinicians will provide telephone and/or video consultation and may arrange for you to come for an appointment at the Dental Hospital to be examined and /or treated in person.

WELCOME

Welcome to the Castlefields Health Centre website where we hope you will find enhanced convenience added to first class healthcare. Find out when we are open and how to see a member of the team. We’ve made life a little easier with practice updates, news on the latest health issues and even access to repeat medication all at your fingertips.

Castlefields Health Centre was the first practice to be built in Runcorn new town. For more than 50 years, the team has endeavoured to create an efficient but friendly way of providing the highest possible level of health care. We are part of the NHS and the services we provide are free of charge. We moved into our new impressive premises in the Village Square in May 2012. The new modern and larger building has provided some much needed space for more consultation rooms and more treatment rooms, a large meeting room and well- equipped training suite, all of which have enabled a variety of new services to be offered to our patients.

YOUR GOOD HEALTH

Access to a wide range of healthcare services is a key element of a good local practice. We don’t just want to see you when you’re ill we want to make sure you stay healthy too. Check out how we can cover both bases with our clinics and services.

BEST PRACTICE

Our professional team will ensure you receive the best attention at all times whether you’re attending a specialist clinic or a routine appointment. If you’re new to the area registration is easy and comes with the comfort of discretion and confidentiality assured.


NHS ENGLAND VISIT

When NHS England last visited us, they looked at our policies and procedures and talked to us about patient care. They told us that they do not have any concerns relating to the work carried out at Castlefields Health Centre and that some of the great work we are doing can be used as examples of best practice to be adopted elsewhere.


CHAPERONES

IF YOU WOULD LIKE A CHAPERONE PRESENT DURING YOUR CONSULTATION, THEN PLEASE ADVISE THE RECEPTIONIST WHEN BOOKING YOUR APPOINTMENT.

THANK YOU.


TRY THE NEW NHS APP!

If you’re a patient at our practice you can now use the new NHS App, a simple and secure way to access a range of NHS services on your smartphone or tablet.

You can use the NHS App to check your symptoms and get instant advice, book appointments, order repeat prescriptions, view your GP medical record and more.

If you already use GP online service you can continue to use it. You can use the NHS App as well.
