IMPORTANT INFORMATION - COVID19
The NHS and Public Health England are extremely well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and staff whilst ensuring services are available to the public as normal.
If you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, please do not attend the surgery. Please visit https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-getting-tested for more information on how to get tested for COVID-19 as soon as possible.
The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of:
- new continuous cough, and/or high temperature

- a change or loss in sense of smell or taste
Please self-isolate for 10 days following the development of any COVID-19 symptoms. If a member of your household develops any of the above symptoms, the rest of the household is required to self-isolate for 14 days. You do not need to inform the surgery or NHS 111 if you are self-isolating.
If your symptoms worsen, persist longer than 10 days or you feel unable to manage your symptoms at home, please call NHS 111.
