Got Symptoms? Get tested NOW!
Got #COVID-19 Symptoms? - Get Tested NOW!
Even if you have been DOUBLE JABBED - if you have:
- a high temperature
- a new, continuous cough
- a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste
- a headache
- a sore throat
You must get a PCR TEST as soon as possible.
A lateral flow test (LFT) is only for people with no symptoms and is not sufficient.
You and anyone you live with should stay at home until you get your test result.
You can order a PCR test kit online to be sent to your home or book an appointment at a walk-in or drive-through test site by calling NHS119
Novel Coronavirus Update
What you need to do https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus
DO NOT go to a GP surgery, community pharmacy or hospital. Call 111, stay indoors and avoid close contact with other people. If you cannot get through by phone, please use the link below (it is the same process for both; there is no difference):
The Practice wishes to continue to provide care to all our patients so we are operating a little bit differently. Our online appointment booking has been closed for the timebeing. Please ring the Practice and book an initial telephone appointment with a GP or Nurse, who will ring you and carry out an initial assessment. If they need to see you they will arrange this with you. Patients may also use eConsult, accessible from our website (there is no sign up requirement) which GPs will try to action within 24 hours at the latest. ***Video consultations for patients with a SMART PHONE is now enabled*** Please ring the Practice to book an appointment.
We appeal to patients who have symptoms of new cough and/or fever, not to come to the surgery as you risk the welfare of other patients and staff. If our GPs and Nurses become unwell, it will have a signigicant adverse impact on our ability to continue to provide care for all patients. So we ask you to please follow the NHS advice and stay away from the Practice, Hospital or Pharmacy ... remember, we are still here and you get in touch with us by telephone or eConsult.
We are pleased to report that our Dispensary is now nearly back to normal workload and therefore the waiting time has been reduced to 3-5 working days.
