Due to Covid 19, Holland Park Surgery will now only be offering telephone consultations.
DO NOT go to your GP surgery, hospital or pharmacy if you have a symptom of:
- New continuous cough OR
- High temperature (of 37.8 degrees centigrade or higher)
Travel and contact history are no longer important for diagnosis, which is on the basis of symptoms alone. If people who have travelled do not have symptoms they do not need to stay at home, regardless of their travel history.
Individuals should stay at home (self-isolate) for 7 days from the onset of symptoms following the current advice. If someone has serious symptoms they cannot manage at home they should use NHS 111 online (people should only call NHS111 if they cannot get online).
After 7 days of self-isolation, people who feel better and no longer have a high temperature can return to their normal routine. If they have not had any signs of improvement after 7 days and have not already sought medical advice, they should use NHS111 online (people should only call NHS111 if they cannot get online) before they leave their home or let visitors in.
Please help to reduce the spread of the virus by basic hygiene practices, such as regularly washing hands and always sneezing into a tissue.
