ADVICE FOR PATIENTS - CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

In line with NHS England recommendations, the practice is currently compiling a list of patients for whom the recommendation would be to isolate for 12 weeks.  If you are in the group to isolate, there will be offers of assistance available to you to help you with this.  We will be texting or telephoning you if you are in this group in the next couple of weeks.

The most important advice is to stay at home and do not meet up with other people for 7 days if you have symptoms of the virus. 

These are:

  • High Temperature

After 7 days, if you are feeling better, you can return to your routine.
