New Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

New Coronavirus (2019-nCoV, COVID-19)

On 13.03.2020 the NHS has ordered all GP practices to start "Telephone First".

This means patients must have a telephone consultation with the doctor. This can also be a video consultation.

Only if the doctor feels it is essential to see the patient in the surgery, then the doctor will arrange a face-to-face appointment.

The patients who are at highest risk of becoming seriously ill from viral infection, should receive a letter from the NHS.

These are the same people who get priority recall for influenza vaccine (flu jab) every year.

If you (or someone you know) have not received the letter, you may view a copy here:
