All other Lincolnshire practices are open, however, they are not yet able to offer a 'business as usual' service and you should only attend in an emergency - these practices will not be able to offer (previously booked) routine appointments and will not be able to access or record in your notes or print prescriptions. They will not be able to give you test results, provide sick notes or issue repeat prescriptions.

Similarly, please do not use online booking to make an appointment as the practice will not be able to see the booking.

Please do not use A&E unless it is a medical emergency. If you feel unwell you should contact NHS 111.

You should visit or call your pharmacy as usual for prescriptions, including repeat prescriptions (please take your current medication with you), and minor illnesses.

Please do not use urgent care services to access prescriptions.

United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust (ULHT) is asking all patients to attend their booked outpatient appointments and operations as planned Tuesday 16 May, unless they receive a call asking them not to attend.

Significant progress has been made and we thank you for your patience. We will continue to update you as necessary.
