Noticeboard

CORONAVIRUS - More information can be found (right hand column; COVID-19 Information)


We understand that with the announcement of a new lockdown there are going to be a number of patients concerned about the situation, especially those in very vulnerable risk groups and also those with children attending educational settings. The current government advice about high risk groups is available here: https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus


Further publication is due Monday and the Government will be writing affected patients. The current guidance for protecting extremely clinically vulnerable groups is available here and is a useful link to send to patients. The GP’s at the surgery have no additional information about and beyond this and are unable to help with requests for sick notes or other letters in such circumstances.


For people concerned about children attending educational settings; we understand and sympathise with the concerns around children attending school at this time, especially if a household has extremely vulnerable members. As a Practice we are very sorry, but the decisions about children attending school are not ours to make. It’s not something that we can help with. We would suggest a discussion between the people involved and the school to decide the best course of action.
