Coronavirus (COVID-19): what you need to do
Stay at home
You should only leave the house for one of four reasons:
- Shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible.
- One form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk or cycle - alone or with members of your household.
- Any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person.
- Travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home.
Advice for people with severe health conditions
This week NHS services will be contacting people with a range of severe health conditions urging them to self-isolate for 12 weeks. We have also contacted all local patients with a generic message following the prime ministers advice on the 23rd March. Please don't panic if you have received a text and don't have a severe health condition. Health advice will be confirmed by letter to those identified this week. There is no need to contact your GP about the message.
Visit http://www.gov.uk/coronavirus for full guidance on staying at home and away from others.

Named Accountable GP
You may be aware that from April all practices are required to provide all their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to them.
As one of our patients, Dr Hamid Masud will be the named GP for male patients and Dr Humaira Qureshi will be the named GP for female patients. Dr Masud and Dr Qureshi will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides for you. This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice as you currently do.
Advanced Nurse Practitioner
At the surgery, reserved car parking spaces for the disabled are maked in the car park. Wheelchair access to the building is through the front entrance. A disabled patient's WC is provided in the waiting room. If access proves difficult to any of our disabled patients we would be happy to consider any suggestions for improvement.
