Noticeboard

Welcome to Gants Hill Medical Centre


Our practice aims to provide a friendly, courteous, effective and professional team. We listen to our patients' comments and complaints and try to make an improvement plan in accordance with the results. We are always open to ideas, suggestions etc.


We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.


 

Important information

Due to the COVID 19 pandemic we want to protect our patients and staff, and for your safety we are changing the way we manage your care to reduce unnecessary trips to the surgery. It is very important that you do not attend the surgery unless invited to an appointment. If you have symptoms associated with coronavirus, including a new continuous cough or a high temperature within the last 7 days then please do not attend the surgery – if well, you are advised to stay at home for 7 days – if you are unsure or your symptoms get worse then use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need further medical help and advise you what to do. Only call 111 directly, if you cannot go online, or are advised to do so by the online service.

For all other queries please consider using our online portal – E-consult - available on the surgery website – or stay on the line to book a telephone call or video call with a GP. Prescriptions should be collected from your chosen pharmacy. For your safety and the safety of our other patients, please only attend the surgery if you have been asked to come for an appointment

The online appointments booking service is suspended until further notice.

Thank you for your patience.

 

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways.

What's the risk of catching coronavirus in the UK?

The UK Chief Medical Officers have raised the risk to the public from low to moderate. But the risk to individuals remains low.

Health professionals are working to contact anyone who has been in close contact with people who have coronavirus.

How coronavirus is spread

Because it's a new illness, we do not know exactly how coronavirus spreads from person to person.

Similar viruses spread in cough droplets.

It's highly unlikely coronavirus can be spread through packages from affected countries or through food.

How to avoid catching or spreading germs

There's currently no vaccine for coronavirus.

But there are things you can do to help stop germs like coronavirus spreading.

Do

cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze

put used tissues in the bin immediately

wash your hands with soap and water often – use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available

try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell

Don't

do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean

Information:

If you've been to China or other specified areas in the last 14 days, follow the advice on this page for returning travellers.

Symptoms of coronavirus

The main symptoms of coronavirus are:

a cough

a high temperature

shortness of breath

Urgent advice: can be accessed at: https://111.nhs.uk/service/covid-19

to Wuhan or Hubei Province in China in the last 14 days (even if you do not have symptoms)

to other parts of China, including Macau and Hong Kong, in the last 14 days and have a cough, high temperature or shortness of breath (even if it's mild)

to Thailand, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, Republic of Korea or Malaysia in the last 14 days and have a cough, high temperature or shortness of breath (even if it's mild)

in close contact with someone with confirmed coronavirus

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital, stay indoors and avoid close contact with other people.

Update on 4th March 2020

For patients concerned that they may have coronavirus or may have come into contact with someone who has, the NHS 111 online service has created coronavirus pages that tell patients what they should do based on their particular circumstances. 

These can be accessed at: https://111.nhs.uk/service/covid-19

Information:

How to isolate yourself if you could have coronavirus

If there's a chance you could have coronavirus, you may be asked to isolate yourself.

This means that for up to 14 days, you should:

stay at home

not go to work, school or public areas

not use public transport or taxis

ask friends, family members or delivery services to carry out errands for you

try to avoid visitors to your home – it's OK for friends, family or delivery drivers to drop off food

While the risk to people in the UK is low, these steps can help reduce the possible spread of infection.

Treatment for coronavirus

There is no specific treatment for coronavirus. Treatment aims to relieve the symptoms while your body fights the infection
