The symptoms of coronavirus are: Cough, Temperature, Shortness of Breath or Loss of Taste or Smell. The symptoms are similar to other illnesses, such as cold and flu. If you have any of these symptoms you must cancel your appointment with us. Contact NHS 111 and arrange a Corona Virus test. Once you have a negative result (cuurrently takes about 3 days) we will reschedule your appointment.
Specific Arrangements For Higher Risk Patients
If you are shielding please contact the clinic in advance and think very carefully if you need a face to face appointment or if telephone information would suffice. If you are shielding we can arrange a seperate room for you, but this is still not as safe as staying at home. If you work with Corona Virus patients (Doctors, Nurses, Carers etc.) please inform us and we will arrange your appointment for the end of the day to minimise infection risk
Thank-you for your consideration.
