Important information about the coronavirus (COVID-19)
The NHS in England and Public Health England (PHE) are well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal.
The Chief Medical Officer has announced that the country is moving into the ‘Delay’ stage of the response to coronavirus from Monday 16th March 2020.
The new advice issued by the Chief Medical Officer is as follows:
If you,or any member of your household have either of the following:
• a high temperature
• a new continuous cough

You and all members of your household,must stay away from other people for 14 days.If you live alone-you must self isolate for at least 7 days and the symptoms have stopped. Stay at least two meteres (three steps) away from people. If you are over 70,suffer from a pre-existing condition or are pregnant,please stay at home and avoid all social contact.


Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home.
Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:
• you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
• your condition gets worse
• your symptoms do not get better after 7 days
Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.

• Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.
• Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.

Update 17.03.2020

**** Please note that due to the move to the "Delay" stage of the COVID-19 virus,the surgery has moved to telephone triage all GP and emergency practitioner appointments.You will receive a call from a clinician and only be asked to come in where the clinician feels it is necessary. This is for the protection of both staff,patients and visitors alike.

At present the nursing and healthcare assistant clinics are running as usual but this may also be subject to change with very little notice. Please inform us if you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed in the Public Health England advice. Do not come to the surgery if you are experiencing any symptoms. The advice on the Coronavirus has been updated on our website today.****
