Current guidance for Coronavirus-COVID-19

How long to self-isolate

If you have symptoms or have tested positive for coronavirus, you'll usually need to self-isolate for at least 10 days.

You'll usually need to self-isolate for 14 days if:

  • someone you live with has symptoms or tested positive
  • someone in your support bubble has symptoms or tested positive
  • you've been told by NHS Test and Trace that you've been in contact with someone who has coronavirus

In light of the Coronavirus situation our online appointment booking facility has been suspended.  If you require a doctor's appointment our reception will book you a telephone triage appointment with a clinician who will contact you.  You will be asked  by reception for the reason for the appointment so the clinician can prioritise their calls.


Patient Participation Group meeting, date and time to be confirmed at Pyrles Lane Surgery.
