If you have received a letter stating you need to shield / isolate and are unsure why or haven’t received a letter and think you should have, please bear with us, we will update you as soon as we have more information.
If you have symptoms associated with coronavirus including a new continuous cough and or a high temperature, you are advised to stay at home for 7 days. Do not book a GP appointment or attend your GP practice. If you live with other people, they should also stay at home for at least 14 days, to avoid spreading the infection outside the home.
If your symptoms are serious, or get worse, NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need further medical help and advise you what to do.
Only call 111 direct if you are advised to do so by the online service or cannot go online.
In Northamptonshire, pharmacies cannot routinely order medicines for the majority of patients. This enables you to take control of your medicines, reduce the amount of medicines that are wasted and save the NHS money.
Instead, we recommend patients use Patient Access (this is accessible via a website or App) or the NHS App (for patients aged 13 and over) to order medicines. This will help you to stay in control of your medication ordering and will save you from needing to visit your practice to order your medicines. If you wish to use another online company or App to order your medicines, practices will only accept requests if the service links directly into your GP’s clinical record. The reason for only accepting requests that link into the GP record will help prevent mistakes when ordering and avoid delays in your GP practice being able to process these requests.
Please contact your practice to register for online access if you haven’t already done so. Alternatively, download the NHS App (free to download) from the App Store or Google Play.
As of Monday 29th June, the Dispensary and Pharmacy will be back to 9-6 Monday to Friday and the Pharmacy will be open Saturday 9-1pm. We request patients to wear a face covering if possible. Prescriptions can be collected from the Dispensary/Pharmacy by using the intercom on the door. Please be aware that we will continue to allow only one patient to enter the dispensary at a time.
If you are showing any signs of the Coronavirus or been in contact with anyone who has or shielding please ring the dispensary on 01536 799229 and they will arrange for home delivery.
We are very grateful to members of Northamptonshire Search and Rescue who have been helping us to get vital medical supplies delivered to those self isolating and under shielding. Thank you!
Mawsley Surgery is a GP Practice located in the village of Mawsley, Northamptonshire, working from purpose built premises with free parking and full disabled access including disabled parking. There is also an allocated pram park within the surgery building. We are also a dispensing doctor practice offering a full dispensing service on site. Our Dispensary is wholly for patients registered with the practice. We aim to provide a fast turn around of prescription drugs from the time of requesting a prescription. We also offer a home delivery service to our patients aged over 65. We keep most medicines in stock but occasionally we may have to order certain items, if this is the case then we have deliveries twice daily and will still be able to provide non–stocked items. For repeat prescriptions, we aim to have your medication ready for collection within 48 working hours.
The Team at Mawsley Surgery aim to treat patients promptly, courteously and in complete confidence.
