Extended Access service is now doing total telephone triage due to Corona Virus pandemic.

We’re here for you..... for longer.

Appointments are now available with a GP, Advanced Nurse Practitioner, Pharmacist, Nurse and Health Care Assistant in your area during evenings and at the weekend. 

Smear tests can now be booked with a nurse at the Extended Access hubs.

Due to the current Corona virus pandemic as per national guidance the extended access service has also moved to total telephone triage, which means an appropriate clinician will speak to the patient first and where ever possible will try and solve the issue including prescribing remotely when possible. The clinician may use a video consultation to assess the patient and if the clinician considers a face to face assessment or examination is indicated they will arrange it at North Chelmsford Health Centre and the patient will be examined using appropriate Personal Protective Equipment. The extended access service does not offer home visiting service at all.This is to protect the patient and clinician from exposure to risk of catching and spreading Corona virus. 

Remember any one can catch Corona virus and anyone can spread it.

Clinicians at extended access service cannot see or assess patients with suspected COVID 19 symptoms and will be directed to the appropriate service. They cannot also arrange any tests for suspected COVID 19. The local Clinical Commissioning Group has provided a respiratory hub to assess suspected COVID 19 cases during weekdays and the service will be provided by local Accident and Emergency service during weekends.
