COVID-19 (CORONA VIRUS) THREAT
Update 4 25th March
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 and volunteers who can help. Please speak to your Mayor, Nikki Turton, in the first instance on (01548) 842847 or 07484 756922, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you wish to help, then also get in touch with Nikki and your name will go on our list of volunteers.
INFORMATION FOR PATIENTS REGISTERED AT REDFERN HEALTH CENTRE
Patients can order their prescriptions via our email address:
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.
For the latest Coronavirus advice please visit www.nhs.uk/coronavirus and follow the guidance given. The site is updated regularly so it is important that you use www.nhs.uk/coronavirus for the most up to date information. We cannot provide our normal level of service, so we do encourage you to use the NHS app, our website and NHS 111 online.
It is important for us to look after each other in our community, so please look after your neighbours and if you can, help them.
The list below highlights the food and grocery businesses who are offering takeaway and/or delivery services. It is not extensive and businesses who are not on it but wish to be included, please email email@example.com in the first instance.
