Welcome to Richmond Medical Centre

Our vision is to provide high quality care to all our patients and to continually strive to improve our service to the community. 

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak we have altered the way we make appointments.  All patients requiring a face to face appointment will be screened/triaged by telephone, eConsult or QDoctor.  This will usually occur in the morning and face to face appointments with ALL clinical staff will be from 12 noon onwards.  

If you wish to make an appointment please use on of the following methods:

 

Telephone: 01522 500240

eConsult: https://richmondmedicalcentre-lincoln.webgp.com

Q Doctor: https://www.qdoctor.io

 

All other contacts with the surgery must be made by the above methods.  Only patients with pre-booked appointments are permitted in the waiting room to reduce the risk of Coronavirus spread and to protect staff and patients. 

We suggest all patients register for online access in the current climate.  If you're not sure how to do this please ring the surgery after 11am any day and we will advise you and set it up.

We are trying to run our services as close to "normal" as possible.  Thank you for your continued support during this time.

  • Register if you have a medical condition that makes you extremely vulnerable to coronavirus. For example, you’ll be able to ask for help getting deliveries of essential supplies like food.
  • If you’re not sure whether your medical condition makes you extremely vulnerable, register anyway.
  • You can register yourself, or on behalf of someone else.
  • If you know it, it’s useful to have your NHS number to hand. You can find it on any letter the NHS has sent you or on a prescription.

 

 

COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Latest Public Health England information and advice 

The NHS and Public Health England (PHE) are well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal.

The latest information on symptoms of coronovirus infection and areas where recent travel may have resulted in a high risk of exposure can be found here.

NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need medical help and advise you on what to do.

Use this service if:

  • you think you might have coronavirus;
  • in the last 14 days you've been to a country or area with a high risk of coronavirus;
  • you've been in close contact with someone with coronavirus.

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

Find out more information on the outbreak of Coronavirus including the current situation in the UK and information about the virus and its symptoms, here.

What is eConsult?

eConsult is free to use for NHS patients. Use eConsult to ask your GP surgery about your health symptoms, conditions or treatment. You can even request things like sick notes and GP letters.

It may not be necessary for you to attend for an appointment.  You can submit details about your condition or your administration request and you will receive a response from the practice usually within 24 hours but you will be advised of the timeframe once you have submitted the online form.
