Important information about the coronavirus (COVID-19)

 

The NHS and Public Health England (PHE) are well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases.

 

The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal.

 

The latest information on symptoms of Coronovirus infection and areas where recent travel may have resulted in a high risk of exposure can be found on nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

 

NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need medical help and advise you what to do.

 

Everyone is being reminded to follow Public Health England advice to:

 

 

  • Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.

 

Training & Research

GP Training

This practice has been accredited to train doctors intending to become general practitioners. The practice needs to be regularly inspected for this purpose, and this involves inspection of the medical records. Only doctors approved for this purpose will do this, and they will respect completely the confidentiality of the information. If you do not want your records to be available for inspection then please inform the practice of your wishes.

Sometimes the doctor may wish to video record their consultations, and in this case your permission will always be requested beforehand. Further information about training in this practice is available from the receptionist.

Research

The practice is part of the National Framework of the Medical Research Council, which carries out nationally the sort of research which can only be done, or is best done, in general practice. Patients are occasionally invited to take part in such carefully monitored projects.
