CORONAVIRUS UPDATE  

Please see our latest patient update - Patient update 17-03-2020

The Practice is following NHS best practice guidelines and is currently only operating a telephone triage service to help reduce the risk and spread of the coronavirus infection.

It has been advised that all practices should:

- Suspended  all 'routine' GP appointments whilst surgeries concentrate on urgent care for the most unwell.

- Move from face-to-face appointments to telephone and virtual appointments. Our new e-Consult service will support this process.

- Practices will move to a system where ALL patients will need to speak to a medical professional to determine the need for an appointment.

Patients are being urged to bear with us and our team during this period of high demand and uncertainty and follow updates on the practice website, Facebook page and SMS message.

Patients can find regularly updated information via the NHS website

- If you think you have COVID-19 symptoms please go to 111 online DO NOT ATTEND YOUR GP SURGERY

- Please follow the new NHS advice to self-isolate at home for 7 days if you have:  a fever AND / OR  a new persistent cough

- if your symptoms are manageable at home and you would not ordinarily require medical attention please do not call 111 unless your condition deteriorates.

- At this point in time GPs CANNOT test for the coronavirus which causes COVID-19

 Thank you for your continued support and understanding

Home Visits

Doctor's bag

Whilst we encourage our patients to come to the surgery, where we have the proper equipment and facilities available, we do appreciate this is not always possible. In this respect, if you do need a home visit, you can help us by calling reception before 12:00pm if possible.

Home visits should only be requested for those who are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice.

Your GP will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed.Please bear this in mind and be prepared to provide suitable details to enable the doctor to schedule house calls

You can be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
