Message from Hilary Hall -  Director of Adults, Health and Commissioning

Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead:

 

Government have identified an increase in COVID-19 cases in Slough and they have subsequently been named as an ‘area of concern’ by Public Health England and the Department for Health and Social Care. As part of the Berkshire-wide Public Health team, we are monitoring the situation and have offered our support to colleagues in Slough Borough Council.

 

“We understand that the cases in Slough are localised and decreasing and this is not a reason for undue concern, but serves as a reminder to everyone that the virus is still circulating in our communities and guidelines on social distancing, face coverings and handwashing still need to be followed. If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, you must self-isolate for at least ten days from when your symptoms started and arrange to have a test.”

 

“While this is not the case at this time, we have an outbreak management plan in place for the Royal Borough should we need to take action.

 

Thanks

Hilary

REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS

Prescriptions are taking longer to process due to the volume and staff shortages. Please allow 4 days for prescriptions to be processed and sent to your designated pharmacy. 

Can all patients only request repeat prescriptions they may need within the next week, we will not issue repeats for 4-6 weeks ahead as you should have adequate supply and claiming these too early will cause unnecessary demand on pharmacies.

Local support, for those in need

There are now two volunteer groups set up to assist vulnerable and elderly patients, if you are concerned about a neighbour or friend please pass on these details to them to seek support during this difficult time.
