Stay at home if you have Coronavirus symptoms

Stay at home if you have either:

  • a high temperature - this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough - this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.


Use the 111 online coronavirus service to find out what to do.

Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.

How long to stay at home

  • if you have symptoms of coronavirus, you'll need to stay at home for 7 days
  • if you live with someone who has symptoms, you'll need to stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person in the home started having symptoms

Coronavirus - Further Information 


Please note the changes to our appointment booking system due to Coronavirus

The Surgery will be offering a telephone triage only with a doctor or a nurse before any face to face appointment at the Surgery will be offered.

For on line booking appointments

Currently we have changed face to face booking slots to telephone consultations; therefore patients will be assessed over the phone by a clinician before any face to face appointment will be offered.


Prescription requests

During the Covid-19 pandemic ALL prescription requests will be taken over the phone or online, please do not come to the Surgery. Please also note that during this time the authorisation of prescriptions might take up to 72 hours.
