From 1 June 2020, each patient is required to read and complete the online consent form that will be emailed to them prior to attending their first appointment.
Any person who currently exhibits any of the key symptoms of Covid-19 (or lives with someone with symptoms) must not enter the practice until seven days after their high temperature has subsided.
The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of any of the following:
1 - a new continuous cough
2 - a high temperature
3 - a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia)
4 - unusual fatigue or shortness of breath
Please let me know if you are displaying any of these symptoms so we can reschedule your appointment
