Latest News

From Monday 19th July patients will no longer have to use the side window as reception at Dr Dawoud’s Surgery, please use the front door 🚪

We are asking that patients continue to wear face masks/face coverings 😷 as our clinicians will still be wearing them to keep both patients and staff safe. 

Please use the hand🤲 sanitiser provided when entering and leaving the building. 

Telephone & Video consultations will remain and the GP’s will continue to decide if they need to see you face to face, this is much more convenient for you and allows the GP to spend more time with you.

Thank you for your continued support as we get back to the new normal!

 

Patients and staff can be reassured that their safety is the top priority!

Public Health England is prioritising contacting people who might have had close and sustained contact with the individual to provide them with health advice about symptoms and emergency contact details in case they become unwell. If you have not been contacted you do not need to take any action.

The latest information on symptoms of Coronavirus infection nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/.

NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need medical help and advise you what to do.

Use this service if:

• you think you might have coronavirus;
• you've been in close contact with someone with coronavirus.

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Call 111 if you need to speak to someone.

Like the common cold, coronavirus infection usually occurs through close contact with a person with novel coronavirus via cough and sneezes or hand contact. A person can also catch the virus by touching contaminated surfaces if they do not wash their hands.

Testing of suspected coronavirus cases is carried out in line with strict guidelines. This means that suspected cases are kept in isolation, away from public areas of GP surgeries, pharmacies and hospitals and returned home also in isolation. Any equipment that come into contact with suspected cases are thoroughly cleaned as appropriate. Specific guidance has also been shared with NHS staff to help safeguard them and others. Patients can be reassured that their safety is a top priority, and are encouraged to attend all appointments as usual.

Everyone is being reminded to follow Public Health England advice to:

• Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.
• Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.
