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 telephone triage first.

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.

FOR MORE INFORMATION PLEASE SEE OUR PAGE ON CORONAVIRUS GUIDANCE

Temporary Registration

If you are unwell whilst away from home, or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from a local GP practice by registering as a temporary patient. You can opt to be registered for either 16 days or 3 months, after which you would need to either re-register temporarily or become a permanent patient.

Temporary registration allows you to be on the local practice list yet still remain a patient of your permanent GP.

To register as a temporary patient simply visit the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient, although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
