Please visit NHS.uk for the latest guidance on coronavirus COVID-19, including symptom checker, self-care and social distancing. Refer to NHS 111 Online to check if you have coronavirus symptoms. If you have severe COVID-19 symptoms and need further advice call NHS 111 — not the surgery.
At this time please do not attend the practice, unless you are advised to do so by a member of the Practice team. If you are asked to attend the practice, you will be kept separate from other patients and the Dr will be wearing full PPE. Please note all patients who are required to attend the practice will be asked to wear a face covering.
Based on Government guidance, our approach at Street Lane Practice approach is:
In general we will try to switch all possible appointments to telephone triage or video consultation. This may involve prescribing antibiotics by phone for coughs and sore throats which, in the name of good antibiotic stewardship, we wouldn't usually consider. This would be intended as a measure to keep potentially infective patients away from those patients who need to attend the surgery for other problems.
If a patient needs to attend the surgery for face to face review he/she will be screened for flu-like symptoms. If these symptoms are present you will be seen by a GP in protective gear in a designated consultation room. If these symptoms are not present you will be seen at the surgery in the usual way.
