To protect patients and the public Patford House Surgery will be closed from Monday 23rd March 2020.
Please rest assured that all services will be continued to be offered as normal, including repeat prescriptions and pre-booked appointments which will be conducted either by phone or face to face at Beversbrook Medical Centre with your usual clinical staff.

Only call 111 if you can’t get online or your symptoms worsen.
The NHS and Public Health England (PHE) are extremely well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal.
Information for the public is available at https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
You can find the latest information and advice from Public Health England at www.gov.uk/coronavirus
Key messages from Public Health England - 12.3.2020
- if you have symptoms of coronavirus infection (COVID-19), however mild whether you have been in contact or not with a confirmed case or suspected case, stay at home and do not leave your house for 7 days from when your symptoms started.
- The coronavirus NHS111 symptom checker is available at https://111.nhs.uk/service/COVID-19/
- this action will help protect others in your community whilst you are infectious.
- plan ahead and ask others for help to ensure that you can successfully stay at home.
- ask your employer, friends and family to help you to get the things you need to stay at home.
- stay at least 2 metres (about 3 steps) away from other people in your home whenever possible.
- sleep alone, if that is possible.
- wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, each time using soap and water.
- stay away from vulnerable individuals such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions as much as possible.
- you do not need to call NHS111 to go into self-isolation. If your symptoms worsen during home isolation or are no better after 7 days contact NHS 111 online. If you have no internet access, you should call NHS 111. For a medical emergency dial 999
Why has the advice on self-isolation changed from 14 days to 7 days
The 14 day period is for those who have had exposure to a confirmed case but have not shown symptoms. The 14 days represents the potential incubation period (the time it takes for symptoms to show if you have been infected).
Most people will no longer be likely to transmit the virus 7 days after the onset of symptoms. You do not need to call NHS111 to go into self-isolation. If your symptoms persist past 7 days you should contact NHS 111 online at 111.nhs.uk. If you have no internet access, you should call NHS 111.
Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:
- you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
- your condition gets worse
- your symptoms do not get better after 7 days
The online service can be found here https://111.nhs.uk/service/COVID-19/
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
Everyone is being reminded to follow Public Health England advice to:
- Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.
