Please stay at home for 14 days if you, or someone you live with has either:
- a high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
- a new, continuous cough – this means you've started coughing repeatedly
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
You do not need to contact 111 and coronavirus testing is not needed if you're staying at home.
NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you what to do if;
- you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
- your condition gets worse
- your symptoms do not get better after 7 days
This can be accessed from https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19/
Please only call 111 if you cannot get help online.
If you call the surgery to book an appointment, our trained Reception staff will need to ask you the reason for the appointment in view of the current situation with the Coronavirus, the ability to book face-to-face appointments online has also been temporarily suspended as advised by Public Health England and National Guidance. Routine telephone appointments can still be booked online.
