Wuhan novel coronavirus

The news on coronavirus continues thick and fast. The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared coronavirus a 'public medical health emergency of international concern'. The Chief Medical Officer has upgraded the risk in the UK from low to moderate.

 

But what does all this mean to the average Briton?

 

You should take action if:

  •  You have been to mainland China, Thailand, Japan, Republic of Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia or Macau and have symptoms of cough or fever or shortness of breath within 2 weeks of returning; or
  • You have been in contact with someone with a confirmed case of coronavirus, even if you feel entirely well.

If either of the above apply to you:  

  • Stay indoors and avoid all possible contact with other people. 
  • In Scotland, ring your GP during opening hours and 111 (NHS24) out of hours and advise them of your recent travel or contact. 
  • Follow their advice and do not leave your home until you been given advice by a clinician.
  • Do not use a taxi or public transport if you are advised to go to hospital. 
  • Do not visit your GP - they do not have facilities in place to isolate you and prevent transmission of the infection to others.

Pregnancy Tests

If you believe you may be pregnant we are unable to perform pregnancy testing here in the practice as we are no longer supplied with the kits to do this by GG&C. 

We would ask that you purchase a pregnancy kit at any Pharmacy and carry out the test before you make an appointment with the GP or Practice Nurse.  Kits are available from as little as a few pounds and are just as accurate as more expensive tests.  Alternatively, if you are unable to fund a kit we can send a sample of urine to the lab for testing however results will not be available for 4-5 days.
