Corona virus! Stay safe, stay at home, protect the NHS, save lives

Welcome to our website


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms

Stay at 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.

How long to stay at home

  • if you have symptoms of coronavirus, you'll need to stay at home for 7 days
  • if you live with someone who has symptoms, you'll need to stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person in the home started having 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.


Coronavirus
Following the speech from the Prime Minister on March 23rd.
Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus.
This includes people of all ages – even if you do not have any symptoms or other health conditions.
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

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:

To help yourself stay well while you're at home:

  • stay in touch with family and friends over the phone or on social media
  • try to keep yourself busy – you could try activities like cooking, reading, online learning and watching films
  • do light exercise at home, or outside once a day

If you need medical help for any reason, do not go to places like a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
If you have
symptoms of coronavirus (a high temperature or a new, continuous cough), use the 111 coronavirus service.
If you need help or advice not related to coronavirus:

  • for health information and advice, use the NHS website or your GP surgery website
  • for urgent medical help, use the NHS 111 online service – only call 111 if you're unable to get help online
  • for life-threatening emergencies, call 999 for an ambulance

Read the full advice on protecting yourself if you're at high risk from coronavirus on GOV.UK.
If you live with someone who has symptoms of coronavirus, you can get an isolation note, you do not need to get a note from a GP.
Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.

Ludham Surgery will only have the doors open for medication collection from 10am until 1pm until further notice.
 
Stalham Green Surgery will only have the doors open for medication collection between 3 and 6pm until further notice.
 
We understand many are here on behalf of others and are very sorry for the late notice but hope you understand we are dealing with extraordinary circumstances, and must take all measures necessary to keep you safe and our service maintained.
 
If you need an appointment you should still call the surgery during working hours: 8:30-6pm.
Other than blood tests, or INR testing you will be offered a telephone consultation, and the clinician you speak to will only ask you to attend the surgery if absolutely necessary to provide safe care.
 
For other issues please consider other sources of advice so we can keep our lines as open as possible to provide patient care. The gov.uk website and nhs.uk have a lot of information relating to Coronavirus and other health issues.
 
If you have symptoms which could be due to Coronavirus you should go home immediately to self isolate (‘stay at home’) yourself and your entire household and access help from 111 if you are no better after 7 days or need help before then.

For Isolation Notes, please visit https://111.nhs.uk/isolation-note/ and follow the guidelines online.

If you have been asked to attend to see a clinician for an appointment please ring the doorbell or await in your car, whichever you were instructed.
 
We ask all patients to follow signage and staff instruction to allow us to safely manage social distancing whilst you are here.
