Information and Practice Services

To minimise the risk of spread in our community, our GPs now offer a triage system. Following triage assessment, if it is felt to be safe and appropriate, an appointment may be offered at the practice. The triage system is in line with national guidance.

Please read our appointment system letter which can be found here: https://www.bowmedicalpractice.co.uk/data/uploads/224_429356167.pdf 

The definition of Coronavirus type symptoms are a high temperature over 37.8 and/or a new continuous cough and/or loss of taste and/or loss of smell. If you have any of these symptoms, please stay at home and self-isolate for 7 days.

If your condition gets worse or your symptoms do not get better after 7 days, call NHS 111 if you cannot seek advice online https://111.nhs.uk/service/covid-19

APPOINTMENTS

We ask all patients to ensure that they stay 2 meters apart from others whilst attending the practice. Please wear a face covering when attending the practice. As far as possible, please attend unaccompanied to minimise the risk of infection to others.

HOME VISITS

We are not able to home visit patients following self-isolation guidance but may arrange for patients to be seen at the practice safely, where there is a medical need. Home visit requests will be assessed by the doctors, care will continue to be provided for housebound (not self-isolating) patients.
