Coronavirus

 

The NHS and Public Health England (PHE) are extremely well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal.

The risk to the general public is moderate. If you have arrived back to the UK from any of the countries below, follow the specific advice for returning travelers. Detailed advice for returning travelers is available on gov.uk.

 

Call 111 now if you've been:

  • to Hubei province in China in the last 14 days or Iran, areas of northern Italy in lockdown or "special care zone" areas in South Korea since 19 February (even if you do not have symptoms) detailed maps are available on gov.uk
  • to other parts of mainland China or South Korea, Thailand, Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia or Macau in the last 14 days and have a cough, high temperature or shortness of breath
  • to other parts of northern Italy (anywhere north of Pisa, Florence and Rimini), Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos or Myanmar since 19 February and have a cough, high temperature or shortness of breath
  • in close contact with someone with confirmed coronavirus

Nurses

Our nurses are both experienced in community and hospital nursing and run clinics at both surgeries. They are able to monitor and advise on long-term conditions such as asthma, COPD, with spirometry testing, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and hypertension with ECG checks, and carry out routine cardiovascular screening for those over 40. They are available for cervical smears, blood tests, travel, flu, and childhood vaccination and advice, dressings, and run an anti-coagulant clinic for patients taking warfarin.
