COVID-19 Coronavirus: Protecting Yourselves and Others (as at 26th March 2020)
Stay at home for at least three weeks
Save lives to stop the spread of coronavirus
At this essential time, it is important that everyone supports the advice being given by the government in order to look after one another and the NHS. The latest information and coronavirus symptom checker is available on NHS 111 online. The only exceptions for leaving home currently are:
- to shop for essential items or collect medicines
- to travel to work if you are considered to be a key or essential worker
- to exercise once a day and only by yourself or members of your household
We ask for your help with increasing demand, so that we can prioritise patients who are unwell and have urgent medical needs. If you are worried you may have coronavirus, have a persistent cough or high temperature, please use the symptom checker link above first. If you need other medical help, please check your symptoms on NHS111 or the NHS App. If you do need to contact the Surgery, please telephone us first and do not come to the Surgery. A telephone consultation can be arranged and the clinician will decide if you need to be seen face-to-face. For the time-being, we cannot offer a pre-booked face-to-face appointment or online appointment booking. For further information and advice about coronavirus and more, Click here
