Coronavirus Update

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT:

AS OF 14.10.20 WE ARE UNABLE TO SEE PATIENTS FACE TO FACE AT THE SURGERY UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. AS A PRACTICE WE ARE STILL MAINTAINING OUR TELEPHONE TRIAGE SERVICE. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE

Stay at home for 14 days if you have either:
A high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
A new, continuous cough – this means you’ve started coughing repeatedly

A change or loss in smell/taste (Updated 19.5.2020)

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you’re staying at home. Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you’re staying at home. Read the advice about staying at home.

Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:

  • you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
  • your condition gets worse
  • your symptoms do not get better after 14 days

Use the 111 coronavirus service. Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.

NEW: Coronavirus app from the Government

A new Coronavirus Status Checker has been launched that will help the NHS coordinate its response and build up additional data on the COVID-19 outbreak. People with potential coronavirus symptoms are now being asked to complete the status checker and answer a short series of questions which will tell the NHS about their experience.

Teaching & Training

We are an approved training practice for fully qualified doctors to gain experience of General Practice. The GP Registrars usually work in the Practice for six months conducting surgeries, home visits and clinics etc. At all times responsibility for patient care remains with the Partners.

You may occasionally be asked if we can videotape your consultation with the GP. This will only be done with your consent and the camera will be switched off at your request.

We also teach medical students and student nurses. They will only attend your consultation with your permission.
