WHY CAN’T I COME TO SURGERY?

WE ARE NOT EQUIPPED TO HANDLE CORONAVIRUS

Coronavirus is classed as an ‘airborne high consequence infectious disease’.On January 31, 2020, WHO declared coronavirus as a ‘public health emergency of international concern’.

On February 10, 2020, the British government declared coronavirus a ‘serious and imminent threat to public health’.

On March 3, 2020, NHS England declared coronavirus a level 4 incident – the highest level of emergency preparedness planning.

GP surgeries are not properly equipped to handle such cases as you will need specialist testing and care.

NHS England has confirmed that it will not supply GP surgeries with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), because GPs should not be dealing with coronavirus cases.

By turning up at surgery, you risk the surgery being placed into a state of lockdown and you will be putting yourself and others at risk. This cannot be stressed enough!

PLEASE DO NOT BOOK AN APPOINTMENT WITH US.

PLEASE DO NOT COME TO SURGERY.
