Chadsfield Medical Practice has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal. Testing of suspected coronavirus cases is carried out in line with strict guidelines and NOT done at the practice. 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 comes into contact with suspected cases is thoroughly cleaned as appropriate. Patients can be reassured that safety is everyone’s top priority and are encouraged to attend appointments as usual.

If you have a new cough or  fever or loss of sense of taste or smell you must get a Covid test and self isolate and your household must self isolate for 14 days. If you need further information or  become unwell phone NHS 119 or go online https://111.nhs.uk/ Or ring 999 if emergency

If you have an appointment at the surgery and develop any symptoms you must NOT attend your appointment but follow advice above. If you have had a recent covid test do NOT attend the surgery until you have received a result and it is negative and your period of self isolation is over, unless directed to attend by your GP. If in doubt phone the surgery before attending.

Please wear a mask/face cover when you attend the surgery. Do you think your exempt? Click here
