TACKLING CORONAVIRUS 

NEW APPOINTMENT SYSTEM

Cofton Medical Centre is no longer conducting initial face-to-face GP appointments in order to prevent the spread of Coronavirus amongst patients and staff. Access to the surgery will be only for patients with booked appointments which have been pre-arranged by a clinician. If you need to arrange an appointment, please telephone the practice.

PRESCRIPTIONS

Due to the changes in workload due to Coronavirus, prescriptions will now take 3 working days to be processed. Please ensure you give enough notice for us to process your prescription request. Please ensure you have nominated a pharmacist for the Electronic Prescription Service. This will reduce the need to attend the practice. You can order your repeat medications online. If you have difficulties in using online services please let us know.

All surgeries in England have been advised by NHS England to consult online, by phone or video link in order to tackle the spread of coronavirus.

To protect yourself and others, do not come to the practice.

If you have symptoms of Coronavirus Infection (COVID-19)

Stay at home and do not leave your house for 7 days from when your symptoms started.  This will help protect others in your community whilst you are infectious.  You should:

  • plan ahead and ask others for help to ensure that you can successfully stay at home
  • ask your employer, friends and family to help you to get the things you need to stay at home
  • stay at least 2 metres (about 3 steps) away from other people in your home whenever possible
  • sleep alone, if that is possible
  • wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, each time using soap and water
  • stay away from vulnerable individuals such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions as much as possible

 

You do not need to contact your GP Practice or call NHS111 to go into self-isolation.

You will need to self-isolate for 7 days. After 7 days:

  • If you do not have a high temperature, you do not need to self-isolate;
  • If you still have a high temperature, keep self-isolating until your temperature returns to normal.

If your symptoms worsen during home isolation or are no better after 7 days contact online/call the NHS 111 service.

 

If you, or the person you are caring for, is struggling to breathe, has a fast pulse, their hands or lips are cold and/or blue, are drowsy, confused or difficult to wake, has tightness in their chest, or is unable to speak a short sentence, dial NHS 111 or 999 immediately.

 

If you need any other medical help, or advice, please contact your GP surgery between the hours of 8:30am and 6.30pm, and NHS 111 between the hours of 6.30pm and 8.30am for advice. In case of emergency, call 999.
