If you are concerned that you may have Coronavirus, or may have come into contact with someone who has, the NHS 111 online service has created Coronavirus pages that tell what you should do based on your particular circumstances. Please do not visit the surgery until you have contacted NHS 111.
In line with national guidance, antibody testing (to see if you have had Coronavirus) is being rolled out in Suffolk and North East Essex in a safe and phased way. It has begun within our hospitals. We will keep you updated as to when this test is available to wider staff and patient groups. Meanwhile, please may we request that you do not ask your GP about availability. This will help us to help you with all other urgent calls. We will make an announcement as soon as we can. Please also note that as this is a new disease we don’t yet know if having antibodies means you are immune.
Please note: As per NHS England guidance all GP appointments are currently being triaged once you have completed an e-consult by clicking on "contact your doctors online". You will be advised if you should attend a face to face appointment subsequent to triage. If you attend the surgery for a face to face appointment you must come to the surgery with a mask or face covering on and wear it for the duration of time in the surgery. For those who are not able to fill in an e-consultation you will be offered alternative methods of contact.
Please find below some advice on your wellbeing during this difficult time:
111 is the NHS non-emergency number. It’s fast, easy and free. Call 111 and speak to a highly trained adviser, supported by healthcare professionals.
