Llandyssil – Do You Need Help with Prescription Collections?

If you’re unable to collect your medicines from Montgomery Surgery, please contact Anthea Wilson on 01686 669814 or 07793 862189. You will need to give your full name & address.

Anthea will then deliver your prescription to Maralyn Parry who will arrange to get it to you.

Montgomery Medical Practice

Please help us to help you:

Please avoid coming into the practice premises. In an effort to minimise risk of infection to members of the public and staff and to cope with unprecedented demand on our service, we are making changes to the way the practice works.

If you have a fever or a new continuous cough, you should self-isolate for 7 days. Members of your household should self-isolate for 14 days from the onset of your symptoms.

All routine GP appointments will be converted into telephone consultations. Essential appointments i.e. Warfarin monitoring will be carried out as normal.

If you wish to cancel your appointment, please leave a message on our designated cancellation line.

Cancellation Line: 01686 669019.

For urgent appointments or visit requests, please telephone the practice. As usual, you will be placed on our triage list and a member of the clinical team will ring you back. If the clinician feels you need to be seen, then a face to face appointment will be arranged. Please assist by giving the receptionists clear information on your symptoms and confirm your contact details.

Please order your repeat prescriptions using our repeat prescription order lines or by using My Health Online.

Montgomery Collection: 01686 669036          Ladywell Collection: 01686 669029

You can still access the building to collect your repeat prescriptions. Please wait in the foyer where a member of staff will come to you. If there are already more than two people waiting in the foyer, please wait outside or wait in your car. We are trying to keep patient-to-patient contact to the bare minimum.

If you are collecting prescriptions, please offer to collect family, friends or neighbours medications too.

We are aware that the government have encouraged all over 70 year olds to self-isolate regardless of no symptoms. Please arrange for someone to collect your prescription for you – it is not the surgery’s duty to deliver your repeat prescriptions.

We are unable to issue patients with more than one month’s supply of medication. This restriction has been implemented by the government in order to avoid medication shortages.

The practice will not be providing letters or sick notes to any patient who has been advised to or has chosen to self-isolate.

We realise that some patients may find these changes frustrating, however verbal or physical abuse to any member of the practice team will not be tolerated.

In Summary:

• We are still open, however there is restricted access into the building

• We are still accessible to deal with your urgent requests/queries via triage

• Self-isolate if you have symptoms or are feeling unwell

• Wash your hands regularly with hot water and soap

• Carry disposable tissues with you at all times

• Catch coughs and sneezes in a tissue and dispose of safely immediately

 Your cooperation and patience are much appreciated

Llandyssil Village Hall

The Trustees of The Old School Hall, Llandyssil have decided to close the Hall from Monday 23rd March.

This decision was not taken lightly, but it was thought by all Trustees to be the correct course of action.

It's hoped that closing, and cancelling all activities within the Hall will help prevent the spread of virus within the village, avoid the necessity of thorough cleansing of the Hall and absolve the Trustees from any liability of not taking sufficient steps to reduce the possibility of viral infection within the community.

The Yoga group, Line Dancers, Ladies Group and other Hall users all agree that this is the correct thing to do.

Any changes to this policy will be made here and on notices placed at the Hall and around the village.

Llandyssil Village Lottery

Thank you to all of last year's members. Your participation raised over £750 for hall funds. Thank you for your generosity.

We would also like to thank all members who have decided to rejoin for the next twelve months. We have approximately 100 members for the next year.

However, as we're not able to make the first draw in April due to the hall being closed, we have decided to postpone this until July. Both draws will take place then, even if there is not a coffee morning. We are sorry to have to change the date, but as you can understand, the present circumstances make this necessary.

Information for help in Abermule

NHS Hospital Transport (for hospital appointments only) tel. 01686 613200 to book.

Drivers have access to full PPE.

Appointments must be before 16:00 and patients should provide their NHS number (from their appointment letter) when they book.

Need to be aware that they may be picked up well in advance of their appointment time and / or wait for collection from hospital to fit in with other patients. Cover appointments at the main hospitals - Shrewsbury, Telford, Gobowen and Welshpool (dialysis).

Functioning reasonably as normal but carrying fewer patients at a time.

Volunteer Drivers - North Montgomeryshire Volunteer Bureau

tel. 01938 554484 to book (currently open 09:45 - 15:00 week days, closed Wednesday)

Currently for essential journeys only but this does include appointments at doctor's surgeries or local hospitals.

Limited by current driver availability.

Those using this transport will be asked to carry hand sanitiser and wear a mask and the driver will do likewise.

They normally offer social transport, shopping trips as well but not presently. Charge 45p per mile but currently waiving this if people have trouble accessing cash.

There are few volunteer drivers in our area, really only one in Welshpool,and currently several drivers are self-isolating so the service is a little sparse.
