Noticeboard

IT systems in practices NHS Warrington Clinical Commissioning Group is advising patients that some practices are currently experiencing issues with slow IT systems, which may impact upon how quickly practice staff can help.

 

These issues are not the fault of staff within your GP practice, so please do be patient, they want to help you and will to their best to do so.

The slow access to systems is due to issues with the national N3 network - the national broadband network for the NHS - which is currently being replaced in stages across the country.

 

Local migration to the new Health and Social Care Network (the replacement for the N3 network) will take place within the next 6-8 weeks and once the work has been completed will provide a reliable and efficient service for GP practices. Thank you to all local people for their patience in this matter and for supporting your GP practice during the transition period.

Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) is a new respiratory illness that has not previously been seen in humans.

The risk of getting the illness in the UK is low.

Advice to travellers returning from China and specified areas

  • stay indoors and avoid contact with other people
  • call NHS 111 to tell them of your recent travel to the city

If you're in Northern Ireland, call 0300 200 7885.

Please follow this advice even if you do not have symptoms of the virus.

If you get a cough, a high temperature, or you feel short of breath, continue to follow this advice. Do not leave your house.

What this means in practice
