INFORMATION FOR PATIENTS REGARDING CORONA VIRUS (COVID-19) INFECTION
Due to the coronavirus outbreak, please do not attend the surgery if you have a respiratory illness, cough, fever or temperature. If you have already booked an appointment with us for another reason and then develop these symptoms please call reception to convert your appointment to a telephone consultation instead.
Worried if you have Corona Virus? Note the NHS stopped testing (swabbing) patients and are working to government policy. Click on the link for more information nhs.uk coronavirus - covid-19 page.
Those at greater risk should be social distancing/ isolating. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-guidance-on-social-distancing-and-for-vulnerable-people
If you believe you fall into the Government's "extremely" vulnerable group but have not received a letter you can apply on line. The following link will allow you to see if you qualify and how to apply. https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus-extremely-vulnerable
If you live alone, stay at home for 7 days if you have coronavirus symptoms:
- a high temperature of 37.8 degrees centigrade or higher
- a new, continuous cough
DO NOT go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
If you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill. For anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14-day isolation period.
Please click here for further information on staying at home and when household members can come out of isolation.
You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home. Please use the NHS 111 coronavirus service if:
- you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
- your condition gets worse
- your symptoms do not get better after 7 days
Only call NHS111 if you cannot get help online.
Further guidance is available at gov.uk/coronavirus and https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19
Due to the current situation regarding Coronavirus, we have temporarily suspended patients from booking GP appointments online. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause to our patients. You can still book appointments by contacting the practice by telephone, but please be aware that the receptionists will ask you a few questions. We are taking these measures to help minimise the risk of spreading the virus.
Thank you for your co-operation.
