Covid-19

Here we are, back to Level 1.

 

It’s vital to continue swabbing everyone with possible COVID symptoms - cough, fever, sore throat or breathlessness. Then another outbreak will be detected as early as possible.  It's easy to get a swab, just phone and book. When you arrive we’ll quickly do the swab in the surgery carpark. There is no charge. Results come back in 1-2 days.

 

We are almost back to “business as usual” but a few rules still apply:

 

  • DO NOT COME TO THE SURGERY WITHOUT A PRIOR PHONE CALL
    You will be turned away unless your problem is an immediate emergency.

 

  • Requests for appointments will be triaged when you phone.

 

  • On arrival you will find the front door locked and the receptionist will ask you if you have any respiratory symptoms.

 

  • Please use the hand sanitiser on arrival.

 

  • Patients with respiratory symptoms will be segregated from others.

  

Dr Ivor Cammack will continue to triage requests for appointments and is available to advise over the phone.
