COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Stay at home if you have Coronavirus symptoms.

Stay at home for seven days if you have Coronavirus symptoms:

  • A high temperature
  • A new continuous cough
  • A loss or change to your sense of smell or taste

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

You do not need to contact NHS 111 to tell them you are staying at home.

Use the NHS 111 online Coronavirus service if:

  • You feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
  • Your condition gets worse
  • Your symptoms do not get better after seven days

Visit the NHS website for information on symptoms and advice at www.nhs.uk


In line with the Government guidelines, we would like all patients to wear a face mask or covering when coming to the surgery for a face to face appointment. Our clinical staff will also be wearing personal protective equipment (PPE).

Telephone appointments can be booked by calling the surgery on 01205 311133. All telephone appointments are released at 8.15am Mon-Fri and if the GP deems it necessary, we may organise a video or face to face appointment.

A guide for parents/carers

It can be confusing to know what to do when your baby or child is unwell during the coronavirus pandemic. Remember that the NHS is still providing safe care.

We've developed posters for families living in England, Scotland, Wales (in English and Welsh languages) and Northern Ireland about when and how to get medical help for your child, or for your young baby - or for yourself as a young person.
