cORONAVIRUS !!!!

Coronavirus presents with flu like symptoms including a fever, a cough or difficulty breathing. 

The virus is confirmed by taking samples/swabs from the patient’s nose and throat and possibly samples from the respiratory system.

 

The majority of cases have experienced mild symptoms and those who have died in Wuhan appear to have had underlying health conditions.

 

If you have travelled from Wuhan or Hubei Province to the UK in the last 14 days:

You should immediately stay indoors and avoid contact with other people.  Call NHS 111 and inform them of your recent travel to this area. They will advise you of the next steps

 

If you have travelled from the following areas:

Mainland China

Thailand

Japan

Republic of Korea

Hong Kong

Taiwan

Singapore

Malaysia

Macau

And you develop symptoms of cough, fever or shortness of breath you should stay indoors, avoid contact with other people and call NHS 111 to inform them of your recent travel to the country and your symptoms.

 

We are asking patients to take simple common sense steps to limit the spread of the virus – as you would with any other flu like virus, this includes:

Staying at home and not going to work, school or public areas

Avoid travelling on public transport

NHS 111 will advise you of the next steps.

 

These steps are highly precautionary and are aimed at limiting the potential spread of infection.  The majority of patients who have had the virus have made a good recovery.

When We Are Closedout_of_hours

Out of surgery hours the surgery answer phone message will direct you to the NHS 111 service via 01562 745040 or you may contact the service directly on 111.

The Centre is situated in the Kidderminster Hospital Treatment Centre, next to Minor Injuries Unit. Please telephone first, as it is not a drop-in centre. You may be given advice or asked to attend.

You will be expected to attend the centre except for exceptional circumstances. The terminally ill and housebound will be visited.

The primary care is for emergencies and not intended for those unable to attend the surgery during normal hours or for those seeking second opinions. The Centre is staffed by suitably qualified doctors employed by NHS Worcestershire.
