pikc and mix
Contrary to utterly demoralising and irresponsible media reporting slating GPs for being closed and not seeing patients, we are open as we have been throughout the pandemic, but we are assessing patients remotely by telephone and/or video chat and only calling in those patients for a face-to-face review where it is deemed clinically necessary.
This is for the health and safety of all patients and our staff, and in line with national guidance on preventing spread of coronavirus.
We will only unlock the doors to let you in if you have been specifically invited to attend by us, otherwise you will be turned away.
If you have been given a booked appointment time to see a clinician, please attend alone (where possible) wearing a face covering and arriving on time.
Visit our General Practice 2.0 page for detailed information on how we are managing your specific conditions during the coronavirus pandemic or type ivy.gs/gp2.

Novel coronavirus, officially named COVID-19 by WHO, is a new respiratory illness that has not previously been seen in humans and which was first identified in Wuhan City in China.
Coronaviruses as a group, are common across the world, and cause symptoms including fever and a cough that may progress to a severe pneumonia causing breathing difficulties.
This coronavirus is classed as an 'airborne high consequence infectious disease'.
Hundreds of thousands of patients in the UK have tested positive for coronavirus and nearly 50,000 people have sadly died from it.
If you are concerned you might have coronavirus, please do not come to the surgery. This is official government advice.
The following is a brief timeline of UK response:
A high temperature (37.8°C or more if you have a thermometer, or if you feel hot to touch on your chest or back if you don't have a thermometer)
A new cough you haven't had before, or if you usually cough, it has got worse, and where you are coughing a lot more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours
Smell and taste are deeply connected, so this applies to either or both sensations - if you have noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
high temperature new continuous cough loss or change of smell or taste
