We have made the difficult decision to cancel all face to face consultations. All appointments will be changed to a telephone appointment. All patients will be contacted by telephone and if a face to face appointment is necessary an appointment will be booked.
We hope our patients understand why we have made this decision, we need to protect both our patients and staff.
Please DO NOT attend the surgery unless you have an appointment.
Where to go to have a blood test - COVID-19. Updated 10 June 2020
Most patients in the highest clinical risk groups who have been advised to shield, have been identified and contacted either by the NHS or secondary care clinicians.
If you have not received a letter but would like to self-identify as being in a high risk group, please visit the government website. They will then inform Maylands who has self-identified in this way, we will review this list and send a shielding letter to patients considered to be high clinical risk.
If you require a medical certificate for self isolation, information and a self certificate can be downloaded from the following COVID-19 medical certificate
