cORONAVIRUS !!!!

Coronavirus presents with flu like symptoms including a fever, a cough or difficulty breathing. 

The virus is confirmed by taking samples/swabs from the patient’s nose and throat and possibly samples from the respiratory system.

 

The majority of cases have experienced mild symptoms and those who have died in Wuhan appear to have had underlying health conditions.

 

If you have travelled from Wuhan or Hubei Province to the UK in the last 14 days:

You should immediately stay indoors and avoid contact with other people.  Call NHS 111 and inform them of your recent travel to this area. They will advise you of the next steps

 

If you have travelled from the following areas:

Mainland China

Thailand

Japan

Republic of Korea

Hong Kong

Taiwan

Singapore

Malaysia

Macau

And you develop symptoms of cough, fever or shortness of breath you should stay indoors, avoid contact with other people and call NHS 111 to inform them of your recent travel to the country and your symptoms.

 

We are asking patients to take simple common sense steps to limit the spread of the virus – as you would with any other flu like virus, this includes:

Staying at home and not going to work, school or public areas

Avoid travelling on public transport

NHS 111 will advise you of the next steps.

 

These steps are highly precautionary and are aimed at limiting the potential spread of infection.  The majority of patients who have had the virus have made a good recovery.   

 

Please do not attend your GP Practice, as stated if you fit the above criteria please call NHS 111 for further advice.

It’s Your Practice: A patient guide to GP services has been put together by the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) for patients. 

This guide has been produced as part of the RCGP’s aim to build stronger relationships between you and your doctors and encourage the involvement and inclusion of you in your own care.

The guide provides helpful information on all aspects of using GP services: from finding and choosing a practice and how to get the most out of a GP consultation to accessing health records and understanding patients’ rights and responsibilities.

Apple and StethoscopeIt is split into several sections including:

  • General Practice explained
  • Choosing the right practice for you
  • Registering with a GP practice
  • Seeing your GP – consultations
  • Seeing your GP – the next steps
  • After your GP consultation
  • Your health record
  • Your rights and responsibilities as a patient
  • Get involved with your practice


The publication is part of a push by the NHS as a whole to encourage you to understand how you can get the most out of primary care – which also includes how you can become more involved in monitoring your own health.
