Just a reminder to our patients that we are still open for all patient queries/concerns and will consult via telephone or video call as required. Please call the surgery on 01242 223 810 to arrange a telephone consultation.
In particular a reminder for parents, although COVID-19 is unlikely to cause a serious illness in children, please remember that children can still become seriously unwell from other causes that could have similar early symptoms.
Please do not let concerns over COVID-19 stop you from contacting medical services. If you are not sure if your child needs to be seen, please either go to www.what0-18.nhs.uk. If your child is severely unwell please call 999 or go to the Emergency Department.
You might find this Traffic Light view helpful in assisting on when to ask for help.
If you or your child is unwell, please seek help. Remember that NHS 111, GP’s and hospitals are still providing the same safe care that they have always done.
