We are aware that some people are feeling worried about contacting their GP Surgery for advice and care, or contacting them much later than they would normally if they are unwell.
We want to assure you that your GP Surgery still expects and wants to hear from you if you need them- not just for Coronavirus related symptoms.
If you have any concerns please don’t hesitate to telephone your surgery, but please don’t turn up there in person. You will be offered a telephone or video call with the relevant Health Professional and only if they feel it is necessary, you will be invited in for further assessment.
If you have symptoms of Coronavirus and need to be seen, this will be in a designated area.
COVID - 19 Coronavirus
The NHS and Public Health England (PHE) are extremely 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.
Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms
Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:
- a high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
- a new, continuous cough – this means you've started coughing repeatedly
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.
Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you're staying at home.
Read the advice about 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
Use the 111 coronavirus service
Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.
