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.
You are still able to book appointments in advance, the only difference is that these will be by telephone in the first instance.
IF YOU USUALLY ATTEND FOR CHRONIC DISEASE REVIEWS, BLOOD TESTS, INJECTIONS, PLEASE TELEPHONE THE PRACTICE TO FIND OUT HOW WE CAN SUPPORT YOU DURING COVID 19. WE ARE ONLY RESCHEDULING CERTAIN PROCEDURES ON THE ADVICE FROM GOVERNING BODIES. COPD/ASTHMA REVIEWS CONTINUE VIA VIDEO CONSULTATION/TELEPHONE CONSULTATION
