Coronavirus (COVID-19)

STAY AT HOME TO STOP CORONAVIRUS SPREADING

Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

You should only leave the house for very limited purposes:

  • shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible
  • one form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household
  • any medical need, including to donate blood, avoid or escape risk of injury or harm, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
  • travelling for work purposes, but only where you cannot work from home

Important - These reasons are exceptions – even when doing these activities, you should be minimising time spent outside of the home and ensuring you are 2 metres apart from anyone outside of your household.

There is separate advice about staying at home if:

SYMPTOMS AND WHAT TO DO

Do not leave your home if you have either:

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)

To protect others, do not go to places like a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Stay at home.

Use the 111 online coronavirus service to find out what to do.

Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.

Important - Call 111 for advice if you're worried about a baby or child. If they seem very unwell, are getting worse or you think there's something seriously wrong, call 999. Do not delay getting help if you're worried. Trust your instincts.

HELP THE NHS RESPOND TO CORONAVIRUS

Use the quick NHS coronavirus status checker to tell us about your current experience of the virus.

This will help the NHS plan its response to coronavirus by showing where the virus is spreading and how it affects people.

Deepcar Medical Centre would like to invite you to join DoctorLink

DoctorLink We have been looking at how we can improve access to Practice services; DoctorLink is our new online service where you can access advice and appointments on line.

Registration is simple and you can register here: https://app.doctorlink.com/deepcar/register.

For all urgent appointments, we ask that you undertake a symptom assessment through DoctorLink.


The symptom checker will ask you a number of questions to help to identify your problem. The outcome of your assessment will direct you to the right treatment, whether emergency care, your GP, nurse or self care. If your outcome indicates that an appointment is required, you simply click on the request appointment link.


Once the request has been submitted, you will then be contacted by the Practice Team, to arrange an appointment within the identified timeframe (as outlined in the outcome of your symptom checker).


The information you provide will be shared with our clinical team (where appropriate) and will assist in providing robust information of your problem to the required clinical team member prior to your appointment.


You can even download the App:

Are you aged 13-25?
Worried about your emotional or mental health?

You might not realise it, but emotional and mental health issues are quite common and you're not on your own – we're here to support you. Sometimes you just need space to think, and that's cool, we all do. You can do that at Door43.

If you call in to Sheffield Futures, Star House, 43 Division Street, Sheffield, we will do our best to help and support you, or we will point you in the right direction to get help elsewhere.

We can support you in all sorts of situations, so please get in touch and speak to one of our specially trained professionals who are ready to help out and they will not judge you or be shocked by anything you tell them.

Door43

At Door43, lots of different people work together to make sure that we always have someone to hand who can help – including youth workers, counsellors, substance misuse workers, sexual health workers, careers advisors, volunteers, peers supporters and more!

For more information please call us on 0114 201 2800 or drop in to Star House during our opening hours.

Upper Don Network

We are pleased to announce that we have received formal approval for our network Upper Don. This comprises of Valley Medical Centre, Deepcar Medical Centre and Oughtibridge Surgery. Together we work for 21,000 patients with numbers rising due to the new residential building. Our successes as a Neighbourhood can now continue under the new contract as a Network.

We have links with many local organisations, faith groups, People Keeping Well and South Yorkshire Housing Association. We acknowledge that our community has a rich resource in its local voluntary groups and organisations that provide many great services to our local population. Our patients can access shared services across our geographical boundary to improve their health and wellbeing. These include the local community run Leisure Centre, Dementia Café, Community Support Worker, Sexual Health Services, Diabetic Eye screening, Occupational Health, Food bank, Social Café, Addiction Recovery, Valley React, lunch clubs, mother and toddler groups, sports teams and facilities, Drama groups, Young people/children's clubs, dance classes, Stocksbridge Walkers are welcome, Community Carers group, the Community Health Forum and many others. (Apologies if missed).

Locally a new Diabetes Prevention and awareness project has been launched to engage all ages in providing information on healthy living. Our practices are engaged in the Working Win initiative to help people find work and stay in work that may have limiting health conditions. This is run by South Yorkshire Housing Association.

The network already shares a Community Support Worker Amy May, and we will soon be sharing a community pharmacist to support the doctors with Pharmaceutical and Medicine Reviews. The three managers from each surgery work closely together to benefit our patients and each practice has a Patient Participation group where all patients are welcome.

Our long term aim is to bring more services closer to our patients and by working together we will ensure there are equitable access opportunities for our patients. We have appointed a Clinical Director to our Network, Dr Ruth Izard from Oughtibridge Surgery who will represent our practices and patients at City wide meetings.
