Following the Prime Minister announcement and CCG guidance , entry control procedures are now in place at the Dovecot surgery. This is to protect staff and those vulnerable groups. Please telephone the surgery for appointments and prescriptions on 01642672490 and 676520 for medical queries. Please telephone the surgery prior to attending if you have been asked to do so or you are collecting bloods forms or prescriptions. Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this time.
Following Government guidance we are now only able to offer telephone triage appointments at the surgery. If you have an appointment already booked with the nurse and you are feeling unwell or have any cold or flu like symptoms, please DO NOT attend the surgery. A clinician will telephone you to discuss your problem and they will let you know if you need to be seen in the surgery. We will keep you updated as new information is available.
What to do if you have symptoms
Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:
- a high temperature
- a new continuous cough
This will help to protect others in your community while you are infectious.
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
You do not need to contact NHS 111 to tell them you’re staying at home.
We will not be testing people who are self-isolating with mild symptoms.
Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:
- you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
- your condition gets worse
- your symptoms do not get better after 7 days
Only call 111 if you cannot get help online
