Welcome to Sloan Medical Centre

*Please note Blackstock Road surgery will be re-opening in the afternoon again from Monday 8 March.
Apologies for the inconvenience*

Branch Site Opening Hours
Because of staff shortages due to the Coronavirus we have taken the decision to close our branch site at Blackstock Road at 12.30pm each week day. We will increase our clinical services at the branch site in the morning to accommodate this change.

Your medical care will not be effected over this period and will run from our main site at Little London Road.

Our telephone lines remain open between 8.00am - 18.30pm every weekday and patients can access these by calling 0114 2581554.
We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause.

Covid Vaccinations
We have started to vaccinate our patients at our vaccine hub using the Government guidelines. Their address is; The Belgrave Medical Centre 22 Asline Road , Sheffield S2 4UJ. We are doing this at another practice due to very complicated delivery and storage conditions.

In the next few weeks and months we will contact you to arrange your vaccine, so please don't call us.

No matter which site you will attend it will be Sloan Medical Centre that contacts you to book your appointment. You may also receive a text message allowing you to book online.

Government Guidelines are to vaccinate our patients in the following order;

How is the virus spread?

The NHS says it is not exactly known how the Coronavirus is spread from person to person because it is a new illness.
It says similar viruses are spread in cough droplets and that it is "very unlikely" to be spread through things like packages or food.

How do I avoid catching or spreading COVID-19?

• Wash your hands regularly - with soap and water and for at least 20 seconds
• Wash your hands when you get home or into work
• Use hand sanitsers if you do not have access to soap and water
• Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or with your sleeve - not your hands - when you cough or sneeze
• Used tissues should be put in the bin immediately and your hands should be washed afterwards
• Try to avoid contact with people who are unwell
• Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean

The NHS is asking people staying at home to:

• Try and keep two metres (three steps) away from other people in your home - especially older people or those with long-term health conditions
• Ask friends and family and delivery services to deliver food and medicine - but avoid contact with them
• Sleep alone if possible
• Wash your hands with soap and warm water for 20 seconds on a regular basis
• Try to stay away from older people and those with long term health conditions
• Drink lots of water and take everyday painkillers - like paracetamol to deal with your symptoms
• Not have visitors and ask people to leave deliveries outside
• Not leave the house - including going for a walk or to schools or any public places

When should I call NHS 111?

The NHS 111 service are asking patients to use its online service if;
• You cannot cope with your symptoms at home
• Your condition gets worse
• Your symptoms do not get better after seven days
