Welcome to Old Road West Surgery
Important Information about the Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Apologies but due to the Coronavirus the surgery has removed the on-line appointment booking service and patients will now need to call the surgery to make an appointment. We are now placing a contingency plan to only allow telephone consultations unless necessary to come in. Reception staff or a clinician will ask you about your symptoms, if you have recently travelled and who you may have come into contact with over the past 14 days. Apologies for any inconvenience caused and we will re-instate normal service once this crisis is over. PLEASE DO NOT TURN UP AT THE SURGERY.
The NHS and Public Health England (PHE) are well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases and are updating the public and health services regularly.
The latest information on symptoms of Coronovirus infection and areas where recent travel may have resulted in a high risk of exposure can be found on nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need medical help and advise you what to do. Use this service if:
- you think you might have coronavirus;
- in the last 14 days you've been to a country or area with a high risk of coronavirus;
- you've been in close contact with someone with coronavirus.
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Call 111 if you need to speak to someone.
