Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
Posted on 2 Apr 2020
Everyone must stay at home, except for very limited purposes.
If you have symptoms of coronavirus (a new, continuous cough, and/or a high temperature), do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
Visit to our coronavirus webpage for more information.
We are currently trialling video consultations at the surgery, which a GP might offer following a telephone consultation. You will require a smartphone for this. Alternatively, you can download the LIVI app for a video appointment with a GP, not at the surgery.
If you are isolated and need help with food parcel delivery, prescription collection, housing benefit support, or just a friendly phone call, visit our sources of support page.
There are also links to support for mental health and wellbeing, support for victims of domestic abuse, deaf patients, and patients with learning disabilities, autism or Down's syndrome.
You may be at high risk of coronavirus if you:
- Have had an organ transplant
- Are having certain types of cancer treatment
- Have blood or bone marrow cancer, such as leukaemia
- Have a severe lung condition, such as cystic fibrosis or severe asthma
- Have a condition that makes you much more likely to get infections
- Are taking medicine that weakens your immune system
- Are pregnant and have a serious heart condition
If you're at high risk, you will recieve a letter from NHS England or your hospital specialist. If you think you may be at high risk, but have not received a letter, you should wait for NHS England to contact you. Please do not contact the surgery about this, as we are not able to provide a letter.
