COVID-19 Surgery Updated 02/04/20

What are the symptoms of Coronavirus / Covid-19?

  • high temperature or fever
  • cough
  • shortness of breath


Firstly, If you have symptoms and can manage your care at home, visit the NHS Inform Website which has lots of guidance and information that can help you. DO NOT CALL the surgery or NHS 24 at this point. If your symptoms get worse, or you feel you need additional help or advice, then please call NHS24 on 111 anytime day or night.

DO NOT phone your GP surgery for ANY Covid-19 related symptoms – these calls are ALL being dealt with by NHS24 Tel 111 – day and night. This is to protect staff and clinicians from contact with patients with Covid-19 symptoms, so we can deal with patients suffering from other ailments and not put them at risk if they have to attend the surgery.

Do NOT come into the surgery, you must phone first to arrange an appointment or to speak to a Doctor/ Nurse. They will arrange an appointment if required and you will given a time to come down. You may need to phone in once you arrive outside the surgery, before gaining entrance.

Please order prescriptions  only when they are due. You may be asked which pharmacy you use and we will pass the prescription directly to them to save you coming to the surgery. Please allow 3-4 days for prescriptions requests due to the high volume of calls we are dealing with.

The surgery door is locked and only open to patients who have been given permission to attend. Until further notice please do not just turn up as you may not get entry to the surgery. This is a rapidly changing situation and we are doing our best to manage it.

Thank you for you cooperation,  let’s be kind & help each other at this difficult time.
