Coronavirus (COVID-19): what you need to do

Stay alert

We can all help control the virus if we all stay alert. This means you must:

  • stay at home as much as possible
  • work from home if you can
  • limit contact with other people
  • keep your distance if you go out (2 metres apart where possible)
  • wash your hands regularly

Do not leave home if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.

From 18/5/2020 the general clinical case definition for COVID-19 has been updated to include loss of or change in smell or taste. It is now:

New continuous cough OR fever OR loss of/ change in smell or taste

 

Everyone, including health and social care workers, should self-isolate if they develop a new continuous cough or fever or loss of/ change in smell or taste.

The individual’s household should also self-isolate for 14 days as per the current guidelines and the individual should stay at home for 7 days, or longer if they still have symptoms other than cough or loss of sense of smell or taste.

Let us know your Mobile Number and email Address

We are in the process of collecting email addresses and mobile phone numbers for all patients as this can save the NHS money when contacting you..

Please either complete the online form found in the link at the bottom of this page called "text message reminders" or complete the paper form that is available in reception.

Also, try downloading the MJOG app https://www.mjog.com/products/mjog-smart/for-patients/ as it allows you to access more information, services and costs you and us NOTHING to load or use!

You have a named GP!

All patients have  a named GP. We have always operated a "usual GP" system as a way of sharing out the administrative workload for all Doctors. Therefore you already have a "usual GP" and this person will be your "named GP" for NHS purposes. As before, you can still see or speak to any Doctor for advice - this is purely a way we divide up workload for administration tasks. If you want to know who your usual GP is - ask any staff member.

Data Protection & Your Confidentiality Matter.

The General Data Protection Regulations became law on May 25th 2018.
