Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms

Stay at home if you or someone in your household have Coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms which are either:

• a high temperature (above 37.8 degrees)
• a new continuous cough

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you’re staying at home.
You can complete a self certificate for absence so you do not need to contact us for a doctors medical certificate (or ‘sick note’)

Home visits are available to you if you are a registered patient. Patients requiring home visits must be housebound because of illness or disability.

If you need a home visit you should call your local branch practice before 10am where possible on:

01376 583 387

A doctor or nurse may call you back to see if your problem can be dealt with over the telephone. It may also be appropriate to send a nurse or arrange a hospital attendance for you.

If the patient has a temperature or a rash, coming to the surgery will do them no harm and will not endanger others, but please let the receptionist know when you arrive.

Visiting is extremely time consuming so please try to attend the practice if possible.
