Are you aware of what impact the world Cycling Championships will have upon you during the period 21st -29th September 2019. On behalf of all Health and Social Care partners locally, HDFT have created an excellent online resource regarding what impact the event will have. Please go to : https://www.hdft.nhs.uk/worlds/ for further information.
During this period we are expecting significant disruption in the area and therefore we are trying to minimise the impact on you and our services where possible.
Firstly, all requests for medication received between the period 19th August and 2nd September will be issued with 2 months’ supply where possible and safe to do so. This will be issued on two separate prescriptions to cover the period to minimise patients having to access the town centre unnecessarily. This has been done due to the many road closures that will occur and we want to minimise impact where possible on yourselves.
Secondly, during the week 23rd – 27th September we are minimising the number of pre –bookable appointments available during this time to avoid last minute cancellations and appointments that people cannot attend and are therefore wasted. All routine appointments will be bookable a maximum of 2 days in advance during this period.
These minor changes during this period and essential to providing the high standard of care we deliver.
