Any temporary residents needing to be seen should call their own surgery first. The majority of patient consultations are being carried out by phone during the Covid crisis, so by calling your own surgery you will be dealt with by a clinician who has access to your full notes. Please note we are unable to provide electronic prescriptions for temporary residents although your own surgery should be able to do this, even for a pharmacy in Cornwall.
Helston Medical Centre & Porthleven Surgery
If you are attending the surgery for an appointment, please can we ask you to come wearing a mask or face covering such as a scarf.
We are open for business as usual, but please note that all requests for an appointment will be dealt with by telephone first. It is safe to come to the surgery if we ask you to however, as we have procedures in place to ensure that social distancing is respected and all clinicians will be wearing the appropriate PPE.
The best way to contact the surgery is by using eConsult - simply click on the link above or visit the NHS App. By staying away from the surgery sites, unless attending an appointment, you are helping to fight COVID-19.
