Government Advice

The Government has issued the following instructions:

Stay at home

  • Only go outside for food, health reasons or essential work
  • Stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people
  • Wash your hands as soon as you get home

If you have symptoms

  • Stay at home if you have a high temperature (37.8 or above) or a new, continuous cough
  • Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
  • You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you’re staying at home

How long to stay at home

  • If you have symptoms, you should self-isolate and not leave your house for 7 days or until your symptoms are gone
  • If you live with other people, they should stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person got symptoms

If you live with someone who is 70 or over, has a long-term condition, is pregnant or has a weakened immune system, try to find somewhere else for them to stay for 14 days. If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible. Use the NHS 111 online service if you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home, your condition gets worse or your symptoms do not get better after 7 days.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Will my medical insurance cover me?

Please check with your insurance policy provider as not all cover GP services. We are here to help with any issues or queries you have, so please get in touch.

How do I check my insurance cover?

You will need to ring your insurance provider and will likely be asked for the doctor’s name and the name of the facility. If your policy covers GP services, they will be able to issue you with an authorisation code to provide to us when you come for your appointment.

Can my GP refer me to a specialist?

Yes. If you need any specialist care of further tests, we can quickly refer you to see a private consultant at the best private facility for your health needs. Your insurance will typically cover this, though we advise you check if you need a pre-authorisation code beforehand. If you’re not insured, you can still be referred to see a private specialist on a self-pay basis.
