PLEASE, we need to emphasise the following.  We are working in a time of national crisis.  When you are asked to attend an appointment by a Doctor or Nurse, that will require face to face contact with MANY of our staff members including reception, nurses or doctors.  YOU must let us know if you have any symptoms suggestive of COVID-19 virus. These are predominantly a cough, temperature, and/or fatigue.

If you do not tell us or attempt to hide symptoms from us we are ALL at risk of becoming ill.  If a significant number of staff become ill the surgery may close . This is a remote but possible scenario.

Please, please stay away, help is available by telephone or video and most routine face to face tests or treatments can wait until your symptoms have gone away.

Stay at home and protect the NHS and other members of the public too.

You will be asked about your symptoms and for a telephone number.  A GP will then call you back in due course. Please do not attend the surgery unless you have been asked to do so by the Doctor.

Please do not to a GP, Pharmacy or hospital if you have a high temperature of 37.8 or above or a new continuous cough.
