Coronavirus - new guidelines regarding appointments in our surgery.
If you have symptoms of new continuous cough or temperature of 37.8 C or higher, or if you had contact with a person potentially infected with coronavirus (COVID-19), please DO NOT MAKE ANY APPOINTMENT at our surgery, DO NOT COME to our surgery and self-isolate at home for 7 days. If your symptoms are serious please visit 111.nhs.uk or call NHS 111 (if the website access is not possible). If you live with others and you are the first in the household to have symptoms of coronavirus, then you must stay at home for 7 days, but all other household members who remain well must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days.
IMPORTANT - withholding this information is a serious offence and can be prosecuted by PHE (Public Health England).
This is an official guidance of the NHS England and PHE.
We kindly ask you to come to your consultation alone (only one guardian with a child patient). It can help minimise the risk of spreading possible infections.
Try our doctor consultations via Skype.
Update from 24.03.2020
We are still open. However, due to the Coronavirus pandemic outbreak and related restrictions we would like to encourage you to book doctor consultations via Skype.
The latest guidance of staying at home away from others.
You should only leave the house for one of four reasons:
- Shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible
- One form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle - alone or with members of your household
- Any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
- Travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home
