COVID-19

Dear patients

We regret that we have to share this.

Unfortunately, over the last 2 months we have noticed increasing incidences of verbal aggression and disrespect towards staff, both on the phone and at the front door.

We appreciate how difficult life is at the moment and understand the frustration when the phone lines are so busy. We share this frustration.

However, our staff are working exceptionally hard to provide your healthcare needs under very difficult circumstances, which are set to worsen over winter with the 2nd COVID wave.

We are now enforcing a Zero Tolerance policy.
We will end phone calls for verbal aggression and call the police for aggression at the front door.
We endeavour to be kind and courteous to all patients, and we expect the same treatment in return.

We hope you understand that we need to protect our staff through these unprecedented times.
It is by working together as a practice with our patients that we will come through this testing period.

Which Service When ?

 Inappropriate A+E attendances for problems that are neither emergencies nor related to acute injuries from accidents, cause delay in assessment for those who have genuine need. NHS Sheffield is keen to help you choose the right service for your needs at the time, i.e "the right place at the right time". That might be, self-care, pharmacist advice, walk-in-centre, GP (including urgent access as at Jaunty Springs Health Centre),or out of hours GP service. In order to facilitate that, there is some guidance available in our further information list. Please help by accessing the right service at the right time. This is especially important in the winter months when the health service is under additional pressure.Thank you

Coronavirus - Update 

Updated guidelines when attending the practice

Throughout the pandemic we have strived to make the surgery as safe as possible for all our patients and staff. We will continue to do so going forward. 

From the 19th July nothing will change at the surgery - patients will need to still wear a face mask, socially distance and use hand sanitiser in the surgery and staff will continue to wear PPE where appropriate. We do understand that it can be frustrating but we know that when people come to us they are sick and vulnerable (and some cannot receive the Covid vaccinations due to medical reasons) so we feel it would be wrong to not take these small precautions that can protect people.

Jaunty Springs Health Centre has come so far in trying to minimise the impact of Covid and we are sure you understand that we all need to keep the surgery as safe for all patients as we can.

Anyone aged 18 and over can now book for their COVID vaccination by using the link below
