Stay calm

August 14th, 2020

The recent Covid developments have thrown us back into slightly uncertain times. The Silverstream Health Centre team want to remind you that we will continue to be here to support your medical needs, regardless of which level we are under.

Some important points to note:

  • There is no need to stockpile medications. We know from experience in the last lockdown, that although there was an initial unnecessary panic to get prescriptions filled, this settled down and no one had any trouble getting what they needed.
  • We would also like to remind everyone that a medical certificate is NOT needed for the first three days of sick leave. During this time you can self certify.

If you are wary of attending the practice in person, we offer phone and e-consultations. If you have any questions about these options please visit our appointment types page here or phone reception.

For any Covid related enquiries please contact the COVID-19 call Healthline (for free) on 0800 358 5453 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
