CORONAVIRUS

Due to the lockdown, our door is closed and you can only be invited for an appointment by GP or nurse after being screened by triage first - use eConsult to request an appointment.

STAY AT HOME

Everyone must stay at home to help to the spread of coronavirus. Failure to do so puts lives at risk unnecessarily.
You can only go out for the following reasons:

  • shopping for necessities (for example for food or medicine) as infrequently as possible
  • one form of exercise per day (i.e. run, walk or cycle) alone or with members of your household
  • any medical need (including to donate blood) avoid or escape risk of injury or harm, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
  • travelling for work purposes only if you cannot work from home


You must still maintain a distance of 2 meters apart from anyone outside of household, and keep time spent outside to a minimum.

DO NOT GO TO YOUR GP SURGERY, HOSPITAL OR PHARMACY IF YOU HAVE SYMPTOMS OF CORONAVIRUS.

IF YOU HAVE SYMPTOMS

If you have symptoms you must self-isolate for 7 days.

After 7 days:

  • if you do not have a high temperature, you no longer need to self-isolate
  • if you still have a high temperature, keep self-isolating until your temperature returns to normal


IF SOMEONE YOU LIVE WITH HAS SYMPTOMS

If a member of your household develops symptoms then every member of the household must self-isolate for 14 days from when symptoms started.

If more than one person at home has symptoms you must self-isolate for 14 days from the date the first person developed symptoms.

If you develop symptoms, self-isolate for 7 days from when your symptoms start, even if this means self-isolating for more than 14 days.

If you do not get symptoms, you can stop self-isolating after 14 days.

IF YOU HAVE SYMPTOMS AND LIVE WITH A VULNERABLE PERSON

If you live with someone aged over 70, who has a long-term condition,is pregnant or has a weakened immune system, try to arrange for them to stay with friends or family for 14 days.
