We apologise for the inconvenience.

Now our doors are open to you again we are happy to accept your prescription requests using the in-house prescription box.  You can also use e-consult and online access however, we are no longer able to accept them via the telephone.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) – Antibody tests

As part of the national response to COVID-19, antibody testing is now available in Chapelford Medical Centre for staff and some patients.

Patients who are already having blood taken as part of other tests (either in hospital or in their GP practice) may be asked whether they would like an antibody test. The test is completely voluntary.

It’s important to note that this is not a test for immunity, there is no strong evidence yet to suggest that those who have had the virus develop long-lasting immunity which would prevent them from getting the virus again. Antibody testing at this stage is useful primarily to improve our understanding about the spread of the virus.
