IMPORTANT ADVICE FOR OUR PATIENTS AND CARERS

The most important symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of any of the following:

  • a new continuous cough
  • a high temperature
  • a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia)

For most people, COVID-19 will be a mild illness. However, if you have any of the symptoms above, stay at home and isolate for 10 days.  You should arrange to have a test - visit www.gov.uk.

PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE SURGERY TO REQUEST A TEST WE DO NOT HAVE TESTS AVAILABLE

To reduce your chances of catching COVID-19

and reduce pressure on your local GP practice

during this busy time, appointments will be

carried out over the phone unless there is a

clinical need for you to come into the practice.

This will help minimise risk while continuing

to ensure people get the care and advice they

need.
