COVID-19 patient information
Anyone calling the Practice with new symptoms of fever, cough, colds, respiratory symptoms, sore throat or shortness of breath may be offered a telephone appointment with a clinician. We are not booking face to face appointments for these symptoms - this is with the aim of protecting any vulnerable patients attending the Practice for other reasons. If you have an existing appointment booked and begin to experience any of the above symptoms, you MUST inform our Receptionists who will then arrange an appropriate alternative for you. Please note, we are also unable to arrange any COVID-19 testing. This must be done via NHS 111. If you have already spoken to 111 and do not qualify for a test, and are not so unwell that you require hospital admission, then our advice is to self-isolate.
