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.

Do not contact the practice for a sick note due to

To prevent transmission of the virus between patients and safeguard our staff  or their families

please do not come to the surgery unless asked after being triaged.

Ring 0115-9208615 and you will be triaged by phone and possibly video triage.

 

To order prescriptions continue to use SystmOne online ordering, or use the
