Notice to Patients
This is a gentle reminder to be kind to our practice team. We too are stressed and uncertain about the weeks and months ahead. We do understand that everyone's anxiety and worry manifests itself in different ways but we will not tolerate any aggression, anger or abuse and it is unfortunate that we have seen an increase in this kind of behaviour from some of our patients. We are doing the best we can in incredibly challenging circumstances. We remain committed to our patients and doing the best we can.
Do NOT go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital if you show any symptoms.
Anyone with a cough, fever (>37.8) or loss of either smell or taste needs to self isolate at home, alongside their household, as per the NHS Guidance.
Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:
You feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
Your condition gets worse or your symptoms do not resolve after 7 days
You do not need to contact 111/us to advise you're staying at home
NHS England have advised us to move to a total triage service. This means you will not be able to book face to face GP appointments. A doctor will speak to you and if they feel you need to be seen, you will be given an appointment. Please use online access to book a telephone appointment.
