Call 111 - When it is less urgent than 999

Welcome To The Pendle Medical Partnership


We are still open and here for you. We are continuing to provide services as we have been doing throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. We are prioritising delivering of care and services based on clinical needs. If you need medical advice or treatment, please ring us or alternatively, visit the local pharmacy for clinical advice on minor health concerns. For urgent issues or out of hours, you can also call the NHS on 111 or go online to seek NHS advice  

Due to coronavirus, we will be triaging all patients over the telephone. This is to limit face-to-face contact between patients whenever possible and help stop the spread of coronavirus. We still have enhanced social distancing in place and conduct appointments remotely where possible. This is because GP surgeries need to be visited by both clinically extremely vulnerable patients, and people with symptoms of undiagnosed infection 

When you phone you will be asked to provide some information about your healthcare need. This will help the practice team assess the most appropriate way to provide your care, which may include a face-to-face consultation and ensure it is provided by the most appropriate person. Face-to-face appointments are available to all patients where there is a clinical need, which will be primarily judged by the clinician, we will also consider any accessibility issues. 

Appointments are being delivered face-to-face, by telephone, or using video calls and messaging to your mobile or computer – the practice team will assess what is most appropriate for you and if you have a preference you can discuss this with them. 

Attending a face-to-face appointment 

If you are asked to come into the surgery for a face-to-face appointment, please remember to wear a face covering. Measures are in place to keep you safe from infection during your visit to the surgery. If you have a disability or condition which means you cannot wear a face covering or cannot communicate with someone who is wearing a face mask, or require other adjustments before your appointment, please let the surgery know ahead of your arrival. 

COVID vaccination certificates 

From 17 May 2021, people in England who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can demonstrate their vaccination status for international travel. A full course is currently two doses of any approved vaccine. Vaccine status will be available from:  

  • the NHS App which you can download from app stores  
  • the NHS website (from 17 May 2021) 

It may take more than a week for your identity to be checked and verified so you can use these services. 

If you cannot access these online services, and you have had 2 vaccines, you can request a paper letter from the NHS by calling 119. Only call 119 if you had your second dose more than 5 working days ago. It may take 7 working days for the letter to arrive. 

This practice is not able to provide you with a letter that shows your COVID-19 vaccination status. 

When you're planning your travel, check the latest information on demonstrating your COVID-19 status when travelling abroad on the website. Make sure there is time to get  proof of your vaccination status before you leave. 

We would like to say a huge THANK YOU to all our patients during the COVID-19 period. Your support and understanding hasn't gone unnoticed and from everyone at The Pendle Medical Partnership we are very grateful for your continued support.

Your GP practice is adopting special measures to help protect you and others from coronavirus. Do not come to the surgery unless you have been specifically told to do so. We are conducting telephone appointments for all initial concerns;  the Clinician may ask you to provide a photograph or take part in a video consultation.

We ask that you if you are attending the surgery for an appointment, PLEASE bring your own mask with you.
