What are the symptoms of Coronavirus?
The symptoms are very similar to symptoms of other illnesses, such as colds and flu.
Check if you have coronavirus symptoms following the link – https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/symptoms/main-symptoms/
What do I do if I have symptoms?
Do not got to a GP Surgery, Pharmacy or Hospital. In the first instance use the NHS111 Coronavirus advice service online – https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19. Only telephone 111 if you cannot get help online.
In the event that your symptoms are deteriorating quickly with severe shortness of breath or any other symptoms which normally require a 999 call you must continue to use the emergency service – it is essential you mention to the 999 team that you think you might also have corona virus.
What do I do if I need medical advice while on holiday?
Day Lewis (Quay) Pharmacy in Compass House Surgery
Current opening hours 9AM – 6PM Monday to Friday (1PM-2PM closed for lunch)
Letter for insurers to cancel travel arrangements
Insurers and travel companies should be basing their decisions to offer refunds on advice from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Public Health England, not letters from GPs.
It is not a good use of GPs’ time to be writing letters for patients who are not ill but have plans to travel – and GPs will always base their decisions on official advice. Patients will undoubtedly have good and sensible reasons for not wanting to travel to certain places because of the virus, but this is not the same as being unable to travel due to existing illness, and it should not become the GP’s responsibility to give patients advice about where not to travel.

This can be accessed by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01752 398 836 and leaving a voicemail – the telephone number to be monitored 8.30am-4pm Monday to Friday.
