COVID-19 (CORONA VIRUS) THREAT

Your Town Council is painfully aware that the current situation is causing great difficulties for many in our community and we will be using the Salcombe Town Council website, and as many other avenues as possible, to publicise community initiatives aimed at helping those for whom the crisis might present particular problems.

If you know of anyone who is having to self-isolate and as a result needs assistance with shopping delivery, we can put them in touch with Town Councillors who can help.  Please speak to your Mayor, Nikki Turton, in the first instance on (01548) 842847 or 07484 756922, or email cllr.turton@salcombetowncouncil.gov.uk.


INFORMATION FOR PATIENTS REGISTERED AT REDFERN HEALTH CENTRE

Patients can order their prescriptions via our email address:

d-ccgenquiriessalcombe@nhs.net

They can also register to order prescriptions online by contacting us for the registration process and password. We aim to process prescription requests within 48 hours.

The GPs are triaging calls from patients requesting medical advice or an appointment.  If an appointment is deemed necessary following the telephone consultation, we are advising the following:

We ask that patients telephone the health centre when they arrive in the car park and a health care professional will escort them into the building. No member of the public should enter the building if they have a cough or a temperature.

For other requests please telephone the health centre.

We are aware of patients who are housebound, but please inform us of anyone in the community you feel needs our attention.

 We are doing our best to provide a good service to our patients, despite the considerable pressure we are under.
