Please do not come in with colds, coughs, flus, sore throats or fevers
March 19, 2020
During the COVID 19 outbreak we are anxious to be able to maintain as much normal service as possible. We also have to keep our staff safe and maintain Medplus as a safe place to come to.
As it is very difficult to differentiate between coughs, sore throats, fevers, ear aches, colds, flu and COVID 19 we are unable to let anyone with symptoms of these come into the building. We will instead support you with phone or video consults instead.
This is unprecedented in our careers and we are all struggling to come to terms with some of the limitations it is going to put on our clinicians. We have all been dependent on examinations and are going to have to learn to adapt to managing without for anything that may be mimicking COVID 19. Please help us – for example, take your temperature, take your heart rate in beats per minute and if your smart device allows take an oxygen saturation. Please book a phone consult on the portal – with the phone details in the additional information box, or call reception.
Thank you very much for your cooperation, it is much appreciated.
