CHANGES TO HOW YOU ACCESS YOUR GP SERVICES

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, how you contact us will be different at the moment. This is to limit face-to-face contact whenever possible and help stop the spread of coronavirus.

Your GP practice is open and if you need to see your GP, please ring us on 01217060501 – our opening hours are 08.30-13.00 & 14,00-18.00 Monday Tuesday Thursday & Friday and 08.30-13.00 Wednesday.

You can also call NHS 111. Please do not come to the surgery unless you have an appointment.

If you are waiting for a check-up, please be assured we will be in touch.

Appointments are being delivered face-to-face, online and over the telephone. If you are asked to come into the surgery for a face-to-face appointment, please remember to wear a face covering. Measures are in place to keep you safe from infection during your visit to the surgery.

IF YOU HAVE SYMPTOMS OF CORONAVIRUS INFECTION (COVID-19)

Stay at home and do not leave your house for 10 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 10 days. After 10 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 10 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

Measles Is Circulating

Germ

  • We’re seeing measles in Birmingham
  • Measles is extremely infectious and can be serious
  • Anyone over 1 year of age needs to have the MMR vaccine
  • Ask for the free vaccine from your family doctor (GP) if you, or your children, haven’t had 2 doses already
  • If you have symptoms of measles, stay at home and phone your GP or NHS 111 for advice. STAY AWAY from GP surgeries and A&E departments – you could spread the illness to others
