TO HELP REDUCE THE POTENTIAL SPREAD OF INFECTION, WE ARE ADVISING ALL PATIENTS TO PHONE BEFORE COMING TO THE SURGERY. WHEN YOU RING YOU WILL BE ASKED SOME QUESTIONS TO DETERMINE YOUR CONDITION. THIS WILL ENABLE US TO TAKE THE APPROPRIATE COURSE OF ACTION AND PROTECT OUR STAFF AND VULNERABLE PATIENTS. IF WE ASK YOU TO ATTEND THE SURGERY, IT IS NOW MANDATORY TO WEAR A FACE COVERING.
If you have a high temperature, new continuous cough or loss of taste or smell, EVERYONE IN YOUR HOUSEHOLD MUST STAY AT HOME FOR 14 DAYS
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
You can ring NHS 111 for information or advice and they will help you decide if you need to contact your GP.
Calling your GP directly is only necessary if you have:
• an existing health condition
• problems with your immune system
• very serious symptoms
If it is a medical emergency and you need to call an ambulance, dial 999 and inform the operator of your symptoms.
