Welcome to our website.

 

Laxey & Village Walk Health Centres is a partnership of five doctors with approximately 8600 patients. There are two practice premises which cover the villages of Laxey, Onchan and Baldrine. The practice area is north to The Corony through to Governors Bridge and the bottom of Summerhill in Onchan.


We are still open during the Covid 19 pandemic.

Please call reception on 656020 to arrange a telephone appointment.

Do not come to the surgery unless you are told to by the doctor or nurse.

 


 

Appointments


All GP appointments will now be triaged by telephone consultation. 


We will try to manage the problem over the phone, however you may be asked to attend if it is absolutely necessary.

This is to reduce the risk of infection in the waiting room, but also between doctors and patients. 

If you do have to come in to the surgery please come alone, where possible.

We all need to be social distancing and appreciate your help with this.

 

We are trying to contact everyone  but if you have not heard from us please call us on 656020.

 

Please be patient when trying to contact the surgery, it is an extremely busy time.

 

At the front entrance we have put SC1 forms and sample pots.

 

Many thanks for you co-operation.


Coronavirus Information

Online appointments are temporarily suspended

 

Online appointments have temporarily been suspended due to the coronavirus.

 

Please be advised to follow the public health advice on the IOM Government website.

 

Medication Requests

 

Ordering your prescription only medicines

 

Please do not ask for additional supplies of your regular prescription-only medicines from the GP. DHSC Policy is NOT to allow this.

The GPs have been instructed NOT to supply additional volumes of medicines and NOT to supply medicines earlier than they are due to be ordered.

This is in keeping with advice in the UK and to protect all the members of the community and make sure we have enough stock of medicines on island for everyone.

 

Analgesics and self-care items for potential Covid-19 infections

 

We always advise that each home has a small supply of medicines kept in a secure place for the treatment of minor illness.

It is understandable that families wish to keep a stock of medicines should they become ill or need to self-isolate.

The current advice is to use paracetamol for the headaches and fever associated with Covid-19 infections, but you may wish to purchase other items in case you need them.

Your pharmacist will be able to advise you on some practical items you can keep in. 

Please be mindful of the shortage of ‘over-the-counter’ medicines and please do not stockpile.

 

Many pharmacies are restricting the amounts that can be purchased to one pack per patient of paracetamol (tablets and liquid). Please respect this to protect our community.
