PATIENTS ATTENDING FOR APPOINTMENTS AT THE PRACTICE

We are still operating a telephone triage appointment system only and patients should only attend the surgery if they have a pre-arranged appointment.  Where patients have been advised to attend the surgery they should follow infection control guidance, use hand sanitiser provided and adhere to social distancing to minimise the risk of Covid-19.

PLEASE WEAR A FACE COVERING IF YOU HAVE TO VISIT THE PRACTICE

Unless advised otherwise by a GP or Clinician, patients who have been asked to attend a Face to Face appointment should bring their own face covering; this can be a face mask or a scarf.  It should be applied before entering the building and worn at all times while in the building and only removed if to do so by a GP or another Clinician during your consultation.

Please do not attend your appointment if you are unwell or you or any member of your household are suffering from symptoms associated with Covid-19, you should contact the surgery by telephone to re-arrange your appointment.

If you need to order your prescription where possible please order on-line, if you do not have on-line access you can contact the surgery to register for this. You can also ask your nominated pharmacy to order your prescription on your behalf. Otherwise contact the surgery by telephone, wherever possible do not visit the surgery.

_____________________________________________________________

COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It is caused by a virus called coronavirus.

At this time we are requesting that patients stay at home and do not attend the hospital if they are experiencing coronavirus symptoms.

Please stay at home if you have either:

  • 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.)
  • Use the 111 online coronavirus service to be advised on next steps.

CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

IN VIEW OF UPDATED GUIDELINES DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC, ALL FACE TO FACE APPOINTMENTS HAVE BEEN CANCELLED.  THESE WILL BE REPLACED BY TELEPHONE TRIAGE CALL AND THE GP WILL MAKE AN APPOINTMENT FOR YOU IF REQUIRED.

IF YOU ALREADY HAVE AN APPOINTMENT BOOKED WITH THE GP/NURSE/HEALTH CARE ASSISTANT THEN THIS WILL BE CHANGED TO A TELEPHONE TRIAGE CALL.

The Clinicians will try to contact you around the time of your original appointment, however, this may not always be possible, we ask for your understanding at this time.

For the foreseeable future, all of our online appointment availability has been disabled due to COVID-19.

ANY PATIENTS WITH A NEW CONTINUOUS COUGH AND/OR HIGH TEMPERATURE ARE ADVISED TO SELF ISOLATE FOR 7 DAYS

See the NHS 111 On-Line Website for further details and advice -https://111.nhs.uk/ If you have no on-line access and cannot connect to the website then contact NHS 111 by phone, if:

THANK YOU FOR YOUR CO-OPERATION

 

PLEASE SEE BELOW FOR NHS ENGLAND INFORMATION:

Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms

Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:

  • a high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
  • a new, continuous cough – this means you've started coughing repeatedly

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home.

Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you're staying at home.

Read our advice about staying at home.

Urgent advice: Use the NHS 111 online 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

Use the 111 coronavirus service

Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.

How coronavirus is spread

Because it's a new illness, we do not know exactly how coronavirus spreads from person to person.

Similar viruses are spread in cough droplets.

It's very unlikely it can be spread through things like packages or food.

How to avoid catching or spreading coronavirus

Do

  • wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
  • always wash your hands when you get home or into work
  • use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards
  • try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell

Don't

  • do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean

Travel advice

There are some countries and areas where there's a higher chance of coming into contact with someone with coronavirus.

If you're planning to travel abroad and are concerned about coronavirus, see advice for travellers on GOV.UK.

Treatment for coronavirus

There is currently no specific treatment for coronavirus.

Antibiotics do not help, as they do not work against viruses.

Treatment aims to relieve the symptoms while your body fights the illness.

You'll need to stay in isolation, away from other people, until you have recovered.
