Disruption caused by Covid 19

March 5th, 2020 by Dr Wheeler

You will have seen a lot in the news about the Covid 19 virus which is starting to spread.

There have been no local cases yet – but we are keen to minimise spread so are starting to take precautions ahead of time.

If you are booking an appointment with a doctor or nurse in the next few weeks you will need to do so over the phone – and will be asked a couple of screening questions to make sure that we deal with you in the safest way possible.

During this time online appointment booking will need to be suspended – but this will be reintroduced as soon as the situation has settled.

In the meantime – please do NOT attend the surgery if you have any respiratory symptoms or fever, and please tell us if you have travelled abroad in the previous 2 weeks when booking your appointment.
