Coronavirus

What to do if you have symptoms 

Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:

  • a high temperature
  • a new continuous cough

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

You do not need to contact NHS 111 to tell them you're staying at home

From 1st July you will be able to book an appointment to be seen by an Emergency Healthcare Practitioner or Healthcare Assistant on Saturday and Sunday at the Extended Hours Clinic at Bishop Auckland General Hospital. These clinics are run by the Durham Dales Health Federation and need to be booked by phoning our receptionists.

Repeat Prescription Requests

We now only accept repeat prescription requests over the telephone if you are housebound or have exceptional circumstances.  We encourage you to register  and use the online service or you can drop your prescription off at your local branch or send by post.

Care Navigation - New ways for your local GP practice to help you get to the right support. The Receptionist may ask you a few questions to help navigate you to the best person, they wont try to diagnose your problem but you may need to tell them a little bit about why you are calling

Member Information

The Association, through individual clubs, aims to make it easier for people living in Teesdale to socialise, to get together with old friends and to make new ones. Clubs meet weekly for members to talk, have lunch and enjoy a change of scenery. Each Club has a Leader whose job is to organise the club including different activities and events like occasional trips out and visits from speakers. The leader can also organise transport to and from the club if you need it. 

All the clubs have a willing band of volunteers who help by serving the food and drinks, clearing and washing up and giving free lifts etc. 

If you have any questions or concerns don’t hesitate to speak to your Club Leader, however the Association also has a Community Worker. She may be able to help you with some of those problems, big and small, which crop up. 

The Role of our Community Worker –

Madeleine Walton

Madeleine regularly attends each club but is happy to visit you at your home if you prefer. Anything you talk about with Madeleine will be held in the strictest of confidence!

Here is a brief list of some of the things she can help you with:-

  • Hospital and Doctor visits

  • Arranging for help with odd jobs e.g. Handy Van

  • Links to the Citizens Advice Bureau, Utility Services, Health and Social Care

  • Support and help with independent living

  • Benefits advice

  • Disability car badges

This list doesn’t cover everything and you may just want help with some small issue or need someone to talk to – that is all part of her job.

So, if there is anything Madeleine can help you with, speak to her on her next visit, or call her on 01833 695822 and she will do her best to help.
