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.

Are You a Carer?

If you are please let us know - we may be able to help you

 

There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

  • Caring for a parent

    Watch this video on: caring for a parent at home

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
