Do Not Delay Seeking Treatment
If you, or a family member, are ill please do not delay seeking treatment.
When your child is ill or injured it is very difficult to decide if/when to call your child’s GP, NHS 111 or go the Accident and Emergency Department (A&E). During the current situation and while the government is asking everyone to stay at home, it can be confusing to know what to do. Here is some guidance: advice for parents
Coronavirus Symptoms and Households
If you have symptoms associated with coronavirus including a new continuous cough, a loss of or change in your normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia), or a high temperature, you are advised to stay at home for 7 days.
Please do not attend your GP practice.
If you live with other people, they should stay at home for at least 14 days, to avoid spreading the infection outside the home. After 14 days, anyone you live with who does not have symptoms can return to their normal routine.
But, if anyone in your home gets symptoms, they should stay at home for 7 days from the day their symptoms start. Even if it means they're at home for longer than 14 days. The most up-to-date public guidance is always online at www.nhs.uk/coronavirus
If your symptoms are serious, or get worse, NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need further medical help and advise you what to do.
It is very important to continue routine immunisations for children, we cannot afford to have outbreaks of measles, mumps, rubella etc while the health system is responding to COVID-19.
Please call the surgery to book an appointment with the practice nurse.
