Welcome to Holme Parish Council Website
Holme Parish Council Helpline
Please check on your neighbours
Are they OK? Are they vulnerable? Would they ask for help?
Do you feel able to knock on their door and offer your contact details if required; or can you pass us their details?
Who will help them if they become ill, or need to self-isolate?
Everyone should have a “buddy” nearby, a friend or relative or neighbour, who will check that they’re OK, and help them if they need to self-isolate.
Swap phone numbers! You may be used to speaking over the fence, but you will need each other’s phone numbers if either of you becomes ill or needs to self-isolate.
In the event that you lose your “buddy’ through illness or self-isolation then please call the central helpline. Likewise, if you are “buddying” for someone then please let us know so that we can arrange
alternative care should you need to self-isolate.
If you need to self-isolate
Let somebody know – a nearby friend, or relative, or neighbour, who can help or call the central helpline. Stoneleigh and Park View Surgeries are closed but medication can be ordered as follows:-
Downloading the MY GP app – If not already set up they will need to phone us at surgery to set this up to give us their email address
Ordering online by going onto Patient Access – again we would need to have their email address By phoning the surgery directly and ordering ( please bear with us though as the phones are busy) By phoning the Chemists directly (again they are very busy so bear with them)
Also Rowlands are setting up a home delivery of medication for anyone who is social isolating and have no help to collect. Phone them directly to set up 01539 565900
