Important information about the coronavirus (COVID-19) (subject to change)
23rd March 2020
If you have symptoms associated with coronavirus including a new continuous cough
and a high temperature, you are advised to stay at home for 7 days.
Please do not book a GP appointment or attend your GP practice.
If you live with other people, they should stay at home for at least 14 days, to avoid spreading the infection outside the home. After 14 days, anyone you live with who does not have symptoms can return to their normal routine. But, if anyone in your home gets symptoms, they should stay at home for 7 days from the day their symptoms start. Even if it means they're at home for longer than 14 days.
The most up-to-date public guidance is always online at www.nhs.uk/coronavirus
If your symptoms are serious, or get worse, NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need further medical help and advise you what to do.
Only call 111 direct if you are advised to do so by the online service or you cannot go online.
For the latest COVID-19 advice please visit www.nhs.uk/coronavirus
Like the common cold, coronavirus infection usually occurs through close contact with a person with novel coronavirus via cough and sneezes or hand contact. A person can also catch the virus by touching contaminated surfaces if they do not wash their hands.
Testing of suspected coronavirus cases is carried out in line with strict guidelines. This means that suspected cases are kept in isolation, away from public areas of GP surgeries, pharmacies and hospitals and returned home also in isolation.
Any equipment that come into contact with suspected cases are thoroughly cleaned as appropriate. Specific guidance has also been shared with NHS staff to help safeguard them and others. Patients can be reassured that their safety is a top priority.
Everyone is being reminded to follow Public Health England advice to
• Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.
• Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.
Temporary change to Practice appointments (subject to change)
13th March 2020
Please see www.nhs.uk for any queries relating to coronavirus.
Due to recent Covid-19 developments, we have been advised by NHS England to move to a total Triage system. This means if you call for an appointment you will be triaged by a Nurse (for nurse related queries) or a GP over the phone initially. The clinician will then decide if you need to come to the practice, if we will offer a home visit (Only for housebound) or if you can be supported through a video consultation.
All routine face to face appointments will be either cancelled or changed to telephone triage. If you do not wish to visit the practice but feel you still have a query (not related to Covid-19) then please use e-consult via the website home page.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
