**CORONAVIRUS**

Stay at home to stop coronavirus spreading

Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

You should only leave the house for 1 of 4 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

Important - These 4 reasons are exceptions – even when doing these activities, you should be minimising time spent outside of the home and ensuring you are 2 metres apart from anyone outside of your household.

There is separate advice about:

Staying at home if you're at high risk of getting seriously ill from coronavirus

Staying at home if you or someone you live with has symptoms of coronavirus

Symptoms and what to do

Do not leave your home if you have either:

  • A high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • A new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)

To protect others, do not go to places like a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Stay at home.

Use the 111 online coronavirus service to find out what to do.

Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.

Travel Information

To help us offer the appropriate advice, please print and complete the 'Travel Form' at the bottom of this page and hand it in to the Surgery. You can also collect a travel form from reception. This form requires information on which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting in order to determine what vaccinations are required.  There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below.


Once you have handed in your completed form the Nurses will then assess it and if you require any vaccinations or advise relating to foreign travel you will be contacted to arrange appointment with the practice nurse. 

It is important to attend your appointment as early as possible - at least 8 weeks before you travel. This allows the vaccines an appropriate amount of time to work and also allows us time to order in the vaccines if need be.

Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge.  This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
