Our Mission Statement
"Our team are committed to delivering excellent patient care in a professional, friendly and safe environment. With patients and staff working together, we can ensure everyone is treated with courtesy, consideration and respect."
The NHS in Derbyshire 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. The risk to the general public is moderate.
Category 1 countries/areas:- Travellers arriving back to the UK from Wuhan and Hubei Province (China), Iran, Daegu or Cheongdo (Republic of Korea) or any Italian town currently under containment measures are advised to remain at home or their destination and self isolate, even if asymptomatic, and call NHS 111 to inform them of recent travel.
Category 2 countries/areas:- Travellers arriving back to the UK from Cambodia, China (except the areas referred to in category 1), Hong Kong, Northern Italy (except the areas under containment), Japan, Laos, Macau, Malaysia, Myanmar, Republic of Korea (except the areas referred to in category 1), Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam are advised that they do not need to undertake any special measures but if they should develop symptoms (cough, fever or shortness of breath) they should immediately:-
• Self isolate, stay indoors and avoid contact with other people
• Call NHS 111 to inform them of their recent travel to the country
PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY !!!
If you need to speak to your GP please arrange for a consultation to take place over the telephone by contacting the surgery on 01246 277381
Like the common cold, coronavirus infection usually occurs through close contact with a person with novel coronavirus via cough and sneezes or hand contact. A person can also be infected by touching contaminated surfaces if they do not wash their hands.
The risk of being in close contact with a person with coronavirus or contaminated surfaces is very low at the current time, as members of the public who have visited Wuhan and Hubei Province (China), Iran, Daegu or Cheongdo (Republic of Korea) or any Italian town in containment are currently in isolation.
Testing of suspected coronavirus cases is carried out in line with strict regulations. This means that suspected cases are kept in isolation, away from public areas of the GP practice and returned home also in isolation. Any equipment that come into contact with suspected cases are thoroughly cleaned as appropriate. Specific guidance has also been shared with NHS staff to help safeguard them and others. Patients can be reassured that their safety is a top priority, and are encouraged to attend all appointments as usual.
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.
