If you have developed new symptoms of a continuous cough, OR fever OR a notice a change in smell or taste, or have been in contact with someone with confirmed Coronavirus, please do not come to the surgery. National guidance is that if you are otherwise well, you should self- isolate for seven days and your household should self-isolate for 14 days. However, if you do become unwell, you should contact 111 on line for advice. If you are not able to access services on line, then call 111.
Please be aware that the practice is now operating a full telephone triage system in response to the Coronavirus situation. The receptionists will arrange for the GP / ANP to call you to decide how your health issue should be managed. Please be aware that as part of this service, all callers will be asked a range of questions and this may cause a delay in answering telephone calls.
If the GP/ANP does feel that you need to be seen in practice, you will be given a designated arrival time. We ask that you do not arrive too early for your appointment, come alone where possible and wear a face covering.
Following new government advice, we are now asking all our patients to wear a face covering if you attend the practice. This will protect other patients in the waiting area and our staff.
Patients who are high risk or considered at risk of Coronavirus (and fit the NHS England criteria), and need to self-isolate for 12 weeks are being contacted directly by letter from NHS England. If you have received a letter, your employer should accept the letter as proof that you need to isolate for 12 weeks and GP certification is not needed. If you are worried about returning to work, you need to contact your employer directly. The practice will not offer any guidance on this matter.
The practice has temporarily suspended online booking of appointments in light of the evolving Coronavirus pandemic. This is following guidance issued by the Health Secretary.
Face mask exemption letters
Please note that GPs are unable to provide letters stating that individuals are exempt from wearing a face mask when it becomes mandatory. Government guidance states there is no requirement to provide evidence for exemption and if questioned your response that you are eligible for exemption should be considered on an individual basis by the person questioning you.
You can print your own face mask exemption card following the below link
