Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms

Stay at home if you have either:

  • a high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back

  • a new, continuous cough – this means you've started coughing repeatedly

OR

 

  • A household member has the above symptoms

  • Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

  • You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home.

  • Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you're staying at home.

 

How long to stay at home

  • if you have symptoms, stay at home for 7 days

  • if you live with other people, they should stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person got symptoms

If you live with someone who is 70 or over, has a long-term condition, is pregnant or has a weakened immune system, try to find somewhere else for them to stay for 14 days.

If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible.

Read our advice about staying at home.

 

The guidance is changing on a daily basis.  Please latest guidance, check

Urgent advice: Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:

  • you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home

  • your condition gets worse

  • your symptoms do not get better after 7 days

Use the 111 coronavirus service

Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.

CHANGES TO HOW WE WILL BE PROVIDING SERVICES

Please see the 'New services introduced at East Enfield Medical Practice' document

 

APPOINTMENTS:

 

Do not call the GP surgery unless you need to. The surgery phone lines are facing high demand.

 

Please  use NHS 111 online tools to see if you can self manage first.

 

DO NOT attend the surgery for any reason unless you have been advised to.

 

To request telephone consultations/request prescriptions/ check your results, please do so via NHS app

The identification process can occur completely online and you do not need to come into the surgery to do this.

 

For patients that are unable to use these online tools, and all self care measures have been exhausted or your symptoms are worsening or you have a significant health concern, please call the surgery. All appointments have been switched to telephone/video consultations and only patients that really need to be seen face to face after being assessed on the phone by a clinician will be.

 

The practice will continue to have processes to ensure childhood immunisation and other essential care continues.

If you are seen at the surgery your clinician may need to wear gloves, gown and mask so do not be alarmed.


PRESCRIPTIONS:

We will no longer be issuing printed prescriptions, and all prescriptions will be sent electronically to your pharmacy to limit/stop footfall to the surgery. If you have not been setup electronically with your pharmacist, you will be asked on the telephone for your nominated pharmacy so that your prescription can be sent electronically there.

 

You can also put your requests in via NHS app or by email enfccg.eastenfieldmedical@nhs.net

 

FITNESS TO WORK NOTE REQUESTS:

You can self-certify if unwell for than a week and do not need a doctors note.

With Coronavirus self isolation guidance, if you are required to provide a note to stay at home, https://111.nhs.uk/isolation-note/
