The current situation – DO NOT COME TO THE SURGERY

In line with National  (NHS England) guidance to reduce the spread of Corona virus, Overton Park Surgery will be instigating the following guidance from Monday 16th March. It has been recommended that practices suspend ALL routine appointments for the time being.

How will this effect you

We are only offering urgent ‘on the day care’, with all patients being triaged over the telephone prior coming in to the surgery. Patients with existing appointments will be contacted by the surgery and offered a telephone or video consultation at the time of their booked appointment. 

If you have Corona Symptoms

Patients with a raised temperature above 37.8C or a new persistent cough regardless of travel should contact NHS111 via their website www.111.nhs.uk

Isolation Notes

If you or a household member have symptoms of COVID-19/coronavirus, you can self isolate for 7 days without a note and then a note can be accessed via NHS 111 online: https://111.nhs.uk/isolation-note

How to contact us

Please contact the surgery by calling 01242 580 511 if you require urgent ‘on the day care’.  We will then arrange a triage call for you from either a Doctor or a Nurse. We will aim for a clinician to respond to telephone calls within 2hrs.

We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause.
