In response to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, we are putting extra measures in place to protect patients, visitors and staff. These measures include reducing non-essential hospital visits by:

  • Making some changes to our out-patient appointments by offering telephone consultations
  • Reducing the number of in-patient hospital visitors

Please contact us as your surgery may be cancelled or re-scheduled for a later date.

If you believe that you may be at risk of having coronavirus, please do not go to a hospital, GP or a pharmacy.

If you develop either of the following symptoms:

  • a new, continuous cough
  • a high temperature (38°C or higher)

Please stay indoors and keep away from others. Please do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
