Coronavirus Update

Coronavirus Update

Current guidelines from NHS England state that if you have either a new continuous cough or high temperature you should self-isolate at home for 7 days. DO NOT COME TO THE PRACTICE.

If you need help please either access NHS 111 online or if you do not have internet access call NHS 111.

The following temporary measures have been put in place:

  1. Online appointments have been temporarily withdrawn.

  2. When you call the practice to book an appointment you will be asked if you have a cough or high temperature and will be asked to self-isolate if you have those symptoms. If no symptoms are present you may be offered a telephone or video appointment.

  3. If you have a telephone appointment scheduled please ensure you are awaiting a call from your clinician and that we have your current phone number – please check this with a member of the team.

  4. During your telephone appointment it may be decided you need to come to the surgery to be examined face to face and an appointment will be offered to you.

Please be aware that these temporary measures are necessary to minimise the risk of Coronavirus spreading and affecting vulnerable patients as well as the staff at the surgery. 

Stay safe and well.
