Coronavirus Update 13/03/2020

                                                                    CORONAVIRUS UPDATE 13/3/20

NHS England has issued guidance to GP practices about the use of online appointments in relation to the current coronavirus outbreak.

In order to protect patients, all unnecessary visits to the surgery are to be avoided. You can no longer book a face to face routine appointment without speaking to a clinician. Telephone consultations will be available via our reception. Telephone triage will be available for urgent medical problems that cannot wait until the next telephone consultation. If you are displaying flu like symptoms, please access NHS 111 services online https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19 or via telephone, as this WILL NOT be managed by the medical centre. We appreciate your patience at this challenging time.

 Please see link below regarding information for the public about coronavirus https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public

Use the 111 online coronavirus service to find out what to do next.

If you are suffering with flu like symptoms, do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
