IF YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS) OR THINK YOU MAY HAVE BEEN INFECTED OR IN CLOSE CONTACT WITH AN INFECTED PERSON, PLEASE FOLLOW THE LINK FOR THE LATEST INFORMATION FROM PUBLIC HEALTH:
For patients concerned that they may have coronavirus or may have come into contact with someone who has, the NHS 111 online service has created coronavirus pages that tell patients what they should do based on their particular circumstances. These can be accessed at: https://111.nhs.uk/service/covid-19
PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY IF YOU THINK YOU MAY HAVE BEEN INFECTED, OR IF YOU ARE RETURNING FROM A HIGH RISK COUNTRY.
TELEPHONE APPOINTMENTS ARE AVAILABLE, OR GO TO THE 111 WEBSITE FOR LATEST INFORMATION
Our practice is now part of My Care Record - supporting the delivery of joined-up care.
During the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, additional measures are being put in place to help health and care providers to deliver effective care. This includes how the information from your care records is used.
My Care Record is an approach to improving care by joining up health and care information. Wherever possible, health and care professionals will be able to access care records from other services if it is needed to deliver care for individuals with COVID-19 or COVID-19 symptoms.
For example, we are working to make sure doctors, nurses and co-ordination staff at places you may receive advice or treatment can see important information from your GP record. This will include health and care professionals at neighbouring GP practices, NHS 111 and regional centres for the treatment of critically ill patients including the NHS Nightingale Hospital in London. This will make it easier and faster for them to deliver effective care for you if it is needed.
Please see the My Care Record website for more information including the Privacy Notice to support this work.
