Noticeboard

Eagle House Surgery is following guidance to try and contain/minimise the spread of COVID-19.

For safety of patients, staff and families we are only booking appointments for urgent clinical requirements. Telephone appointments will be used for all other requirements. You will be notified when the status has changed, and EHS is confident that the environment is safe to do so.

If you have a communication requirement and would like us to arrange an interpreter or a British sign language interpreter for you, please send us a request by using the e-Consult on our home page. We will then arrange this service for you.

For the latest Covid-19 advice please visit www.nhs.uk. If you think you may have Covid-19, please do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Use the NHS 111 online service at https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19 to find out what to do next. 

In Times of Bereavement

 

If Death Occurs at Home

1. Telephone the doctor who will visit to confirm that death has taken place.

2. Contact a funeral director.

3. Arrange to collect the doctor's Medical Certificate of Death (usually from the surgery).

4. Take this to the Registrars Office, (together with the deceased's Medical Card and Birth Certificate, if available) for the area in which the death took place. Alternatively you can register by declaration at any convenient Registrars Office but certificates will not be available as these will have to be posted to you a few days later.

5. The Registrar will normally issue a Green coloured certificate for you to give to your funeral director who will look after necessary arrangements for the funeral. The Registrar will also issue a white notification certificate for the DSS. They will also enquire as to the number of Certified Copies you require for dealing with the deceased finances (a fee is payable for each copy).

 

If the Death Occurs in Hospital

1. Contact a funeral director to inform him his services are required.

2. Collect the certificate from the hospital then follow 4 - 5 as above

 

Note for Cremation

Your funeral director will usually liaise directly with the surgery regarding the additional certification required.
