PURTON SURGERY ADVICE - CORONAVIRUS

We are getting quite a few queries from patients asking for Drs letters regarding self isolation for their employers. 

Please see below the latest guidance on this

Please find below a link to the Government guidance. This guidance covers the whole of the UK population and not just those who have been sent a letter by the government.
https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-guidance-on-social-distancing-and-for-vulnerable-people/guidance-on-social-distancing-for-everyone-in-the-uk-and-protecting-older-people-and-vulnerable-adults

 
The primary purpose of the letter sent by the government is to identify the 2% of the UK population who are at critical risk of infection. The remaining 98% are still at risk and need to manage this risk alongside their employer.
 
You can decide if you need to self-isolate and discuss with your employer. In the first instance your employer should offer you remote working. If this is not possible then you will need to consider whether you fall into the furloughed employee category - https://www.gov.uk/guidance/check-if-you-could-be-covered-by-the-coronavirus-job-retention-scheme

 
Beacause you are well enough to work, however unable to attend work because of the risk of contracting Coronavirus, GPs are unable to offer a fit note to cover this period. You will need to work with your employer to resolve this situation.

We would like to inform patients that we remain open as usual. Due to the recent coronavirus outbreak we are now changing how appointments are booked.

Online booking has been temporarily suspended and we will be starting a same day telephone triage service with each doctor and nurse practitioner.

By doing this we aim to reduce patient - patient exposure. The government guidelines are changing daily and if you are concerned you may have coronavirus please visit https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19 for an online self-assessment and information.

If you have an upcoming appointment at the Surgery, we are advising anyone with a new continuous cough or temperature to self isolate for 7 days (this includes children)                                           DO NOT COME INTO SURGERY. Please call the surgery to cancel your appointment.

Thank you for your support.
