Main Symptoms of Covid-19:  Fever/Temperature, New continuous cough, Loss of Taste /Smell.

If you have a high temperature or a new continuous cough you should stay at home for  10 days. DO NOT GO  to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. You do not need to contact NHS 111 to tell them you're staying at home. Read the advice about staying at home and Home Isolation Advice

Use the 111 coronavirus service if you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home, your condition gets worse, your symptoms do not get better after 7 days. For more general information see https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public

An exemption card  has been developed for people who are unable to wear face coverings in shops and other indoor public spaces.
West Yorkshire Metro have also developed one for public transport.

Our GP appointments are routinely by telephone.  If the doctor needs to see you he will arrange a video or face to face appointment.  Please ensure we have your up to date mobile and email contacts.  A face covering or mask must be worn when coming into the building and during your appointment.  You can also use the link on our home page to access E Consult.

DNAs

Over 100 appointments per month are ‘Did Not Attend’ (DNA), i.e. the patient does not turn up for the appointment and does not contact the surgery in advance to cancel/change appointment. The affect of these are:

  • An increase in the waiting time for appointments
  • Frustration for both staff and patients
  • A waste of resources
  • A potential risk to the health of the patient

 

 

If you cannot attend your appointments for any reason please let us know as soon as possible, giving at least 24 hours notice. We can then offer the appointment to someone else.

If you repeatedly fail to attend appointments you may be removed from this practice list and may be required to find an alternative doctor.
