We have suspended all online booking so that we are able to screen all patients that need to be seen by checking their symptoms and whether or not they have had recent travel or been in contact with someone that has travelled recently.
Due to the daily changing of countries affected, we are going to be cautious with all foreign travel patients that are experiencing symptoms of a cough, fever or shortness of breath (however mild) AND that have travelled abroad recently OR been in contact with someone that has travelled. They will be asked to stay at home and seek advice by visiting the NHS 111 online service: https://111.nhs.uk/service/covid-19
For patients concerned that they may have coronavirus or may have come into contact with someone who has do NOT attend the surgery. Attending the surgery will be putting other patients and your local healthcare team at risk. The NHS 111 online service has created coronavirus pages that tell patients what they should do based on their particular circumstances. These can be accessed at: https://111.nhs.uk/service/covid-19
Thank you all for your co-operation on this matter.
