Non-urgent advice: COVID-19
We have put measures in place to manage the risk of covid-19 but can not eliminate the risk completely.
The main symptoms of coronavirus are:
A high temperature
A new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual).
A loss or change of taste or smell – this means you have noticed that you ca not smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal.
If you have any of the above symptoms, do not come into the surgery.
A member of our clinical team will call you prior to any appointments to carry out a covid check. If you are asked to attend the surgery, please wear a face mask. Your temperature will be checked on arrival.
Where possible, please use the bathroom before leaving home and please use the hand sanitiser provided when entering the surgery.

111 is the NHS non-emergency number. It’s fast, easy and free. Call 111 and speak to a highly trained adviser, supported by healthcare professionals. They will ask you a series of questions to assess your symptoms and immediately direct you to the best medical care for you.
