Alert

Coronavirus Update

As Autumn approaches, we want to ensure the health and wellbeing of both our staff and patients.

Please DO NOT come to the practice if you have any of the following symptoms:

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

What to do if you have symptoms

If you have any of the main symptoms of COVID-19, even if they’re mild:

  1. Get a PCR test (test that is sent to a lab) to check if you have COVID-19 as soon as possible.
  2. Stay at home and do not have visitors (self-isolate) until you get your test result – only leave your home to have a test. Check if people you live with need to self-isolate.

For further information please visit https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/symptoms/main-symptoms/

We are also asking you to not visit the practice if the matter can be resolved via the phone or through completion of an e-consult form.

If you do need a doctor’s advice, we kindly ask you to think about whether the matter can be resolved with a telephone consultation.

Please only ask for a face to face consultation if you think it is medically necessary.

We need to keep our staff safe and well so that we can continue to provide you with a good service and we thank you for your cooperation.
