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 ALERT TO STAY SAFE


Everyone must stay alert to help to the spread of coronavirus. Failure to do so puts lives at risk unnecessarily.


With governments easing of restrictions, you can now:

  • form a 'support bubble'* with one other household if you are in a household where there is only one adult
  • attend your place of worship for individual prayer
  • visit any type of shop and some outdoor attractions such as zoos
  • meet outdoors with up to six people from different households, as long as social distancing is observed and you stay at least two metres away from anyone outside of your household or support bubble


* If you or anyone from within your household or support bubble begins showing coronavorus symptoms, you must all stay at home. If you or a member of your support is contacted by the test and trace programme that individual must stay at home; if that individual starts showing symptoms, everyone i the support bubble must isolate.


For more information on meeting people you do not live with, click here.


As before, you must still:

  • stay at least two metres (three steps) away from anyone you don't live with/outside of your support bubble when outside your home
  • wash your hands with soap and water often, for at least 20 seconds
  • use hand sanitizer gel if soap and water are unavailable
  • wash your hands as soon as you get home
  • cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands!) when you cough or sneeze
  • put used tissues in the bins immediately and wash your hands afterwards 
  • wear a something that covers your nose and mouth when it's hard to keep away from people, such as in the shops or on public transport

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