Noticeboard

We are now in the delayed phase of our response to COVID-19. This entails significant changes to how we identify and manage potential cases of COVID-19. Advice for NHS organisations is now as follows:
1. The public are being advised to stay at home self-isolate for 10 days if develop symptoms OR 14 days if any household develops symptoms without any testing for COVID-19, regardless of travel history or contact with confirmed cases, if they have:
a. A new continuous cough
b. High temperature (of 37.8 degrees centigrade or higher)


c. Loss/change to sense of smell/taste


MAINTAIN SOCIAL DISTANCE. STAY AT HOME AND SAVE LIVES.


Home Visits

To allow our Doctors and the home visiting team to spend more time with patients, home visits are prioritised for the terminally ill or housebound.  However other health reasons will be considered.

We do encourage patients to make every effort to attend the practice. There is disabled parking and easy access to the surgery.  Where possible we ask family members to make arrangements to bring in the elderly and the young. Please remember that up to six patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the surgery.

If you require a home visit please telephone between 8:30 and 10:00 am whenever possible as this helps your doctors/home visiting team to plan their rounds.

Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains / shortness of breath / collapse / serious injuries all constitute an emergency.
