Covid-19 - New Lockdown Restrictions

We understand that with the announcement of a new lockdown there are going to be many patients concerned about the situation, especially those in the very vulnerable risk groups and also those with children attending educational settings. The current government advice about high risk groups is available here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/new-national-restrictions-from-5-november

We believe further information will be forthcoming this week, and we understand the Government will be writing to very vulnerable patients. The GPs at the surgery have no additional information above and beyond this. Please read the Government guidance around sick notes and other letters for such circumstances – this is not something that should be required from the GP in these cases.

For people concerned about children attending educational settings, especially if a household has extremely vulnerable members, we understand and sympathise with these concerns, but decisions as to children attending school are not ours to make.  In these circumstances we would suggest that a discussion between those involved and the school to decide on the best course of action would be sensible.

Men, did you know that November is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month? 

1 in 8 men will get Prostate Cancer so we would encourage you to make yourself aware of the symptoms and the help that is available.  To find out more please look at the attached leaflets and if you have any concerns at all, please submit an eConsult to the surgery (details are below on how to do this).

During the Coronavirus Pandemic:

If you have internet access and need advice, please submit an e-consult rather than phoning.  This enables us to help you more quickly as some staff are working from home or self-isolating.  Our admin team, doctors, nurses, pharmacist and physios are ready to help.

To start an eConsult click here 

Please note that you should only attach photos if asked to do so by the clinician who contacts you regarding your eConsult.
