An important message for our patients and colleagues.
Please DO NOT enter the Practice if you have COVID 19 or are suffering from any of the following symptoms:-
- high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
- new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
- loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
- If you have returned from abroad in the last 14 days from a country where you need to self isolate
Currently the Practice is only open with reduced hours for patients with a pre-arranged appointment.
If you have any questions or would like to make an appointment, please telephone 01708 447603 where you will be triaged and an appointment will be offered if necessary.
If you don’t get through to someone in person, please leave a voice message and we will aim to get back to you within 12 hours. Alternatively, please call NHS 111 for any emergency where you are unable to wait for a call-back.
Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience but we hope you understand our reasoning in these crazy times. As you can imagine, this is something we have never had to do in the past but these are indeed exceptional times.
In the meantime, we hope you remain healthy and strongly recommend that you listen to and follow the government advice at all times.
