The latest recommendations from the NHS regarding Coronavirus (COVID 210) is as follows;
Please do not book an appointment or attend your practice if you’ve visited or travelled through mainland China, Hong Kong, Japan, Macau, Malaysia, Republic of Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, or Thailand and have symptoms of cough, fever or shortness of breath within 2 weeks of returning, or if you have symptoms of cough, fever or shortness of breath after being in contact with someone with a confirmed case of coronavirus also known as COVID-19. Please call NHS 111 instead.
So far, there has been incredibly low numbers of positive cases in the UK (only 9). And all nine cases have been quarantined effectively.
However, if you fall into the above risk categories, please ring NHS 111 rather than attend a clinic. Thank you.
