Covid-19 Information

 

URGENT MESSAGE FOR ALL PATIENTS:

Dear Patients as you will be aware, the COVID-19 rates of infection have increased to significant levels in our area. At the same time we need to maximise our work of vaccinating patients with the COVID-19 vaccine. We have been advised to free up time with our team to help look after patients with emergencies and protect patients with the vaccine. If your problem is an emergency then please call 999. If you need to contact the practice with other symptoms or queries please use the eConsult . Your online form will be reviewed by a clinician and you will be contacted back with a text. You will either be contacted by the surgery to ask you more questions or you will receive a text on what to do next.

Please do not come to the surgery unless advised to do so by a GP, Nurse or Receptionist.

 If you do not have online access you can still call the reception desk on 02076037563.

If you have any symptoms of coronavirus, particularly a high temperature >37.8C, new persistent cough or loss of taste or smell please go to www.nhs.uk to check your symptoms via the 111 online consultation service and follow the specialist medical advice.  Only call 111 if you can’t get online, you’ve been instructed to, or your symptoms worsen.

How long to stay at home

  • if you have symptoms, stay at home for 10 days
  • if you live with other people, they should stay at home for 10 days from the day the first person got symptoms
  • If you live with someone who is 70 or over, has a long-term condition, is pregnant or has a weakened immune system, try to find somewhere else for them to stay for 10 days. If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible.

If you feel WELL, please stay at home https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-stay-at-home-guidance/stay-at-home-guidance-for-people-with-confirmed-or-possible-coronavirus-covid-19-infection
