IMPORTANT:WUHAN CORONAVIRUS

Advice from The Department of Health and Social Care is as follows:

We are now recommending that all travellers who develop relevant symptoms (cough, fever, shortness of breath), however mild, within 14 days of returning from mainland China, Thailand, Japan, Republic of Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia or Macau should self-isolate at home immediately and call NHS 111. We are already recommending that travellers from Wuhan and Hubei province should self-isolate for 14 days, even if they do not have symptoms, due to the increased risk from that area.

It is important that we try to control the spread of this virus; if you think you have symptoms and you have recently returned from one of the above countries or you have had contact with somebody who has the Coronavirus, DO NOT VISIT THE PRACTICECALL 111.

The surgery will be closed for training on:
