Patients with symptoms and/or living with others with symptoms:
NHS advice is currently that patients with either of the following symptoms of coronavirus should be in self isolation:
If you have experienced these symptoms in the last 14 days you should not attend the practice for at least 10 days from when symptoms started and after that only when you feel better and no longer have a high temperature.
If anyone in your household has experienced these symptoms in the last 14 days but you have not had any symptoms, then you should not attend the practice for 14 days from when the symptoms started in the first person who experienced symptoms.
If your are in self isolation and you need urgent or emergency dental treatment, you should not attend the practice but instead call 111 who will provide help and advice, and arrange any emergency dental treatment you require.
