Important information about the coronavirus (COVID-19)
The NHS in Wakefield and Public Health England (PHE) are well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to protect patients, our community and NHS staff while ensuring as many services as possible are available to the public.
If you have symptoms associated with coronavirus including a new continuous cough and / or a high temperature, you are advised to stay at home for 7 days.
Please do not book a GP appointment or attend your GP practice.
If you live with other people, they should stay at home for at least 14 days, to avoid spreading the infection outside the home. After 14 days, anyone you live with who does not have symptoms can return to their normal routine.
But, if anyone in your home gets symptoms, they should stay at home for 7 days from the day their symptoms start. Even if it means they're at home for longer than 14 days. The most up-to-date public guidance is always online at www.nhs.uk/coronavirus
If your symptoms are serious, or get worse, NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need further medical help and advise you what to do.
Only call 111 direct if you are advised to do so by the online service or you cannot go online.
During this time if you have any other medical needs please contact the surgery by telephone and your health needs will be assessed – this may lead to a face to face consultation if needed.
GP ONLINE CONSULTATIONS
We have a new system that allows patients to consult with the surgery online - this can be for an admin query such as a sick note or a clinical query. Once you have logged the details of your request, a member of the surgery will contact you with a response. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS SYSTEM IS NOT TO BE USED FOR URGENT MEDICAL ISSUES. To use the new system, please click on the blue box on the home page. If you require any help using the new system, please contact a member of our administration team. Using this system is particularly useful during the current coronavirus outbreak - it avoids you having to visit the surgery which protects you and our staff
