Nene Vallery surgery in Thrapston has just released a statement to all patients advising them of changes to repeat prescriptions:
“Nene Valley Surgery would like to make you aware that repeat prescriptions are still being processed as normal. Due to the current situation and very high demand, one months supply of medications are being issued. Please allow at least 3 days if you are collecting from the Surgery dispensary. Thank you for your cooperation at this time.”

Meanwhile across the car park at the Meadows, a new telephone triage system is in place:
From wednesday 18th march 2020, until further notice, we will be operating a telephone triage service only.
Please do not come to surgery.
Contact us by telephone on 01832 734444 and our reception team will book you a telephone consultation if appropriate. One of our clinicians will then call you. If you do require examination, the clinician will give you a time to come to surgery.
If you already have an appointment booked, do not come to surgery, a clinician or receptionist will contact you by telephone.
We will still be carrying out some nursing procedures as long as the patient and anyone they have had contact with remains free from symptoms of cough and/or fever and/or aching.
