Important information about the coronavirus (COVID-19)

As the advice on Coronavirus is changing daily, please visit www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19 for the latest guidance. 
Please refer to self isolation advice on
www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-stay-at-home-guidance

For the safety of our patients we have increased our telephone triage service. 

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, if your clinician has requested you attend a face to face appointment at the practice, we are asking that our patients remain in their car or stand an appropriate distance away from the front door outside of the building until they are telephoned and asked to come in. We will endeavour to see you as close to your appointment as possible. We ask that you attend the surgery on your own, please do not attend with other members of your household unless absolutely necessary. 

To ensure patient and staff safety, we are temporarily suspending the online booking process for appointments, so that we can ensure all patients have been triaged before attending the surgery. 

We will be sending patients regular updates regarding coronavirus (COV-19) by text. To sign up to the text messaging service please update your contact details via our update contact details form


 
Providing false or misleading information is against legislation and will therefore be committing and offence. 
Updated 17/03/20 Maternity Information
Attending Antenatal and postnatal care is essential to ensure the wellbeing of pregnant women and their babies.
All pregnant women who are well should attend their care as normal. If you are pregnant and have symptoms of possible Covid-19 infection, you should call to defer routine visits until after the isolation period is over. 

Updated 19/03/20 Advice for patients with chronic lung conditions
Due to the current concerns over coronavirus and increase in demand for inhalers, we would advise our patients with chronic lung conditions to follow the guidance set out by Asthma UK, please view the guidance.
Patients are asked not to request extra inhalers. The government have issued guidance to General Practice not to alter our prescription processes to ensure we maintain availability for those who need it.

If you have concerns regarding the management of your current lung condition, you may contact the surgery to arrange a telephone consultation with one of our respiratory team.
If you do not currently take inhalers and you are asymptomatic, you do not need to start taking inhalers now.
