CORONAVIRUS

Coronavirus

The latest information on symptoms of coronovirus infection can be found on https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/.

NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service – 111.nhs.uk  – that can tell you if you need medical help and advise you what to do.

Use this service if you think you might have coronavirus.  Do not go to your GP practice if you think you are infected.

If you have developed a cough or a high temperature in the last 7 days please self-isolate for 7 days if you live alone or 14 days if you live with others.

Everyone is being reminded to follow the public health advice on the NHS website to avoid catching or spreading coronavirus.

Be aware that your GP practice is working hard to speak to patients via the telephone.  If you need to be seen by a GP or nurse you will be asked to come down to the practice at a given time.  You will be offered a mask and the clinician will be in full safety clothing for both their safety and yours.

At this very worrying time please trust that the practice is a ‘green’ area and we are doing everything we can to prevent the virus spreading on the premises to either patients or staff.

It is important that you do not neglect your health conditions during this period.
