Shielding patients

For patients that are shielding, we recommend to continue shielding until we provide a further update.

Important!

We are now in the delay phase of our response to COVID-19. This entails significant changes to how we identify and manage potential cases of COVID-19.

  • 1. From today the public are being advised to stay at home (self-isolate) without any testing for COVID-19, regardless of travel history or contact with confirmed cases, if they have:

  • a. A new continuous cough OR

  • b. High temperature (of 37.8 degrees centigrade or higher)

  • 2. The geographic element of the case definition has now been removed. Travel and contact history are no longer important for diagnosis, which is on the basis of symptoms alone. If people who have travelled do not have symptoms they do not need to stay at home, regardless of their travel history.

Individuals should stay at home (self-isolate) for 7 days from the onset of symptoms.

If more serious symptoms develop that they cannot manage at home they should firstly use NHS 111 online (https://111.nhs.uk/). People should only call NHS 111 if they cannot use the online 111 tool.


APPOINTMENTS:

Do not call the GP surgery unless you need to. The surgery phone lines are facing high demand. Please use the online 111 tools to try to self manage first or call the surgery for a telephone appointment with a doctor if it determines this is still necessary.

DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY UNLESS YOUR GP TELLS YOU TO DO SO

YOU NEED TO REGISTER for the NHS app ASAP! (https://www.nhs.uk/apps-library/nhs-app) to be able to book telephone consultations over the phone, request prescriptions and look at test results. The identification process can occur completely online and you do not need to come into the surgery to do this.

For patients that are unable to use these online tools, and all self care measures have been exhausted or your symptoms are worsening or you have a significant health concern, please call the surgery. All appointments have been switched to telephone/video consultations and only patients that really need to be seen face to face after being assessed on the phone by a clinician will be.

The practice will continue to have processes to ensure childhood immunisation and other essential care continues.

If you are seen at the surgery your clinician may need to wear gloves, gown and mask so do not be alarmed.


PRESCRIPTIONS:

If you have not been setup electronically with your pharmacist, you will be asked on the telephone for your nominated pharmacy so that your prescription can be sent electronically there. 

NOTE: We cannot test for COVID 19.

Test results

Casualty Attendance

Most Emergency problems can be very adequately managed by our practice and there should seldom be a need to go to A&E.  As you will see we have increased the number of hours that we are open and we offer two late night surgeries to help improve access.  You will also see that we have now developed a website that is packed full of useful health information that you may find useful when you are suffering from an illness. 

We always have appointments on the day available and we also discuss problems on the telephone if that is your preferred choice of consultation.

Out of Hours

If you are unwell in the evening, overnight, on a bank holiday or at the weekend and you are unable to wait to see your GP, please call the NHS Care Service on 111. Calls to 111 are free from landlines and mobiles.

Private Services

Certain services such as private sick certificates, medical reports, passport applications and private letters are not covered by the NHS and a charge will be made for them.
