IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR PATIENTS - CORONAVIRUS

To reduce the spread of the virus we are discouraging patients attending the surgery unless you have had a triaged appointment confirmed.  If you require repeat medication please sign up for patient access or contact oxshott.reception@nhs.net or telephone 01372 844000.  Specimens  can be put through the surgery letterbox before 10.45am Mon- Friday.

This measure has been implemented as a temporary measure to protect both our patients and staff.

Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.

 

 

What are the symptoms? Symptoms include:

  • Fever.
  • Dry cough.
  • Difficulty breathing.
  • Severe acute respiratory infection (including shortness of breath, dry cough or sore throat).
  • Loss of appetite.
  • Sweating and shivering.
  • Headaches and muscle aches.
  • Pneumonia symptoms – increasing cough and shortness of breath, sometimes with blood-stained or rust-coloured sputum

Who is at risk? You are at increased risk if you:

  • Have been in an area where the virus could have been acquired in the last fourteen days (eg Wuhan).
  • Have had contact with someone with a confirmed case of coronavirus in the last fourteen days.
  • Are a healthcare worker caring for people with severe respiratory infections.
  • Have flu-like symptoms and have had contact with a hospital in an affected country or had contact with markets selling animals or fish in Hubei province in the last 14 days.

 

How do I get help if I think I might be affected? According to Public Health England’s guidance:

  • You should stay indoors and avoid contact with other people.
  • You should not attend your GP practice – they are not equipped to handle cases of this coronavirus as you will need specialist testing and care.
  • You should call 111 for advice – make sure you let them know if you’re in one of the at risk groups above.
  • You (or the clinician) should call ahead before going to hospital and let them know you think you may be affected.
  • You should not use public transport or taxis to get to the hospital.
  • You will need to be put into isolation away from other patients and staff.
  • When you arrive, you will need to expect the team treating you to wear protective equipment until the infection has been ruled out or confirmed.
