CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

ALL APPOINTMENTS WILL BE DEALT WITH BY TELEPHONE. IF YOU NEED TO BE SEEN AT THE PRACTICE ARRANGEMENTS WILL BE MADE.

IT IS ESSENTIAL YOU DO NOT ATTEND THE PRACTICE IF YOU HAVE A TEMPERATURE,  A NEW CONTINUOUS COUGH OR HAVE BEEN IN CONTACT WITH SOMEONE IN SELF ISOLATION.

You should only leave the house for 1 of 4 reasons:

  • shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible
  • one form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household
  • any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
  • travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home

These 4 reasons are exceptions – even when doing these activities, you should be minimising time spent outside of the home and ensuring you are 2 metres apart from anyone outside of your household.
