CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

Following the recent Coronavirus pandemic, on advice from NHS England we are converting all of our face to face consultations with a Doctor to telephone consultations. If you currently have a routine appointment booked, this has been changed to a telephone consultation. The doctor will call you as close to your appointment time as possible. Please do not come into the surgery.  Many thanks for your understanding. 

 In order to protect patients, all unnecessary visits to the surgery are to be avoided. You can no longer book a face to face appointment without speaking to a clinician. Telephone consultations will be available via calling reception. If you are feeling unwell with continuous cough or High temperature, NHS England advice is to self-isolate at home for 7 days without any testing for coronavirus, regardless of travel history or contact with confirmed cases for 7 days. If your condition has not improved after 7 days and have not sought medical advice please access NHS 111 services online to complete on-line risk assessment https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19 or via telephone, as this WILL NOT be managed by the medical centre.
