From Monday 16th March 2020 all appointments will, until further notice, be phone consultations.   Only in cases where a physical examination is necessary will patients be called into the surgery.   This is a precautionary measure to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.  Thank you for your understanding and support.

The NHS and Public Health England are extremely well prepared for outbreaks of any new infectious diseases.  Measures are in place to ensure the safety of patients and NHS staff, whilst also ensuring that services remain available to the public as normal.    

If you think you might have Coronavirus or you have been in close contact with someone who has please see below.

What to do

  1. If you have symptoms of coronavirus infection (COVID-19), however mild, do not leave your home for 7 days from when your symptoms started. This action will help protect others in your community while you are infectious

  3. DO NOT GO TO A GP SURGERY, PHARMACY OR HOSPITAL  You can use the NHS 111 online service for further advice
  4. Plan ahead and ask others for help to ensure that you can successfully stay at home and ask your employer, friends and family to help you get the things you need to stay at home
  5. Stay at least 2 metres (about 3 steps) away from other people in your home and sleep alone, if possible
  6. Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, each time using soap and water, or use hand sanitiser
  7. Stay away from vulnerable individuals, such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions, as much as possible
