COVID-19

Non-urgent advice: COVID-19 Notice

Please do not arrive more than 5 minutes before your appointment time – if you do, you may be asked to wait outside or in your car.

In addition, wherever possible, please come in to the practice on your own. These measures are in place to ensure that social distancing can be maintained at all times.

Do not leave your home if you have either:

  • high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)

OR

  • 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))

OR

  • loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

To protect others, do not go to places like a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Stay at home.

Use the 111 online coronavirus service to find out what to do.

Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.

We are also asking all patients who visit one of our sites to please wear a face covering. The Government have provided a very helpful guide on how to make your own face covering, details of which can be found here.

This is to help protect our staff and patients, however we appreciate that there will be some circumstances in which patients are unable to wear face coverings. No patient will be refused care or entry to one of our sites because of this.
