Help us to help you
Please contact reception if you have any health concerns
From 13 March 2020 the public are being advised to stay at home (self-isolate) without any testing for COVID-19, regardless of travel history or contact with confirmed cases, if they have: .
a. A new continuous cough
b. High temperature (of 37.8 degrees centigrade or higher)
Individuals should stay at home (self-isolate) for 7 days from the onset of symptoms following the current advice. If someone has serious symptoms they cannot manage at home they should use NHS 111 online (people should call NHS111 if they cannot get online).
After 7 days of self-isolation, people who feel better and no longer have a high temperature can return to their normal routine. If they have not had any signs of improvement after 7 days and have not already sought medical advice, they should use NHS111 online (people should only call NHS 111 if they cannot get online) before they leave their home or let visitors in.
Cough may persist for several weeks in some people, despite the coronavirus infection having cleared. A persistent cough alone does not mean someone must continue to stay at home for more than 7 days.
Testing will NOT be offered routinely to individuals staying at home.
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.
"You Said - We Did" - Telephone problems - Our new telephone system has been installed! Please note our results number will be disconnected and you will now be able to call via the main number 020 8508 4580 press option 2.
