*Coronavirus Updates*

Coronavirus adviceFollowing the latest Government guidance the surgery is still open.  Please continue to contact us as normal. Access to the surgery is by appointment only following triage by a clinician. This will minimise the spread of infection and keep patients and staff safe.  Please do not attend the practice unless you are asked to do so.

Advice for parents of sick or injured children

Whilst it is extremely important to follow Government advice to stay at home during this period, it can be confusing to know what to do when your child is unwell or injured. Please visit this page with advice for concerned parents

Help stop coronavirus spreading

  • if you have symptoms of coronavirus, you'll need to stay at home for 7 days
  • if you live with someone who has symptoms, you'll need to stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person in the home started having symptoms

The symptoms of coronavirus are: 1) a cough, 2) a high temperature and 3) shortness of breath, but these symptoms do not necessarily mean you have the illness as the symptoms are similar to other illnesses that are much more common, such as the common cold and flu.

There are things you can do to help the Coronavirus spreading:

DO Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze

  1. DO Put used tissues in the bin immediately
  2. DO Wash your hands with soap and hot water often. Use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
  3. DO avoid close contact with people who are unwell
  4. DO NOT touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean
