***URGENT PATIENT NOTICE - COVID-19 VIRUS***

If you are unwell with a high temperature (37.8C or higher) or a new continuous cough, please stay at home and self-isolate for 7 days from the onset of your symptoms regardless of your travel history or contact with confirmed cases. PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY, A PHARMACY OR TO A&E. Please go to the NHS 111 online service https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/ if you have serious symptoms that cannot be managed at home or have had no improvement of your symptoms after 7 days. Please only ring NHS111 if you cannot get online. Please note a cough may persist for several weeks for some people. However, this does mean you need to stay at home for more than 7 days.

As you will be aware, COVID-19 virus is a new illness that is spreading across the UK. As such we are taking actions to protect our patients, our staff and our community by introducing a new telephone triage system for GP appointments. Our aim is to significantly reduce the footfall through our surgery in order to reduce the risk of spreading the virus, in line with national guidance.

All GP appointments will initially be on the telephone. If you have an appointment booked with a GP, please do not come to the surgery - please stay at home and the doctor will call you as near to the allocated time as possible. The GP will do all they can to help you over the phone - however, should they feel the need to see you face to face for an examination, you will be invited to the surgery for review. Please either telephone the surgery or use the patient online access service to book appointments. We are no longer booking appointments face to face at reception. Patients will be screened by telephone for all pre-booked nurse and HCA appointments.  Please do not come to the surgery unless you have been invited to do so by a clinician.

Due to the COVID-19 virus outbreak and to prevent the spread of infection, for the immediate future we are temporarily disabling the ability for patients to book face to face appointments online. However, you will still be able to book telephone appointments online. Please note you can still request repeat prescriptions online.

Please click here https://111.nhs.uk/isolation-note/ if you have to stay at home because of coronavirus and you need a note for your employer. If you have to stay at home but feel well enough to work, ask your employer if you can work from home. If you can work at home, you will not need an isolation note.

Looking after your mental health during or after Pregnancy

Pregnancy and the post-natal period brings a lot of change and it is normal to experience a range of emotions during this time. However, it also a time when you may become more vulnerable to developing a mental health disorder.

One in ten women can suffer from a mental health illness during or after pregnancy in any given year, where you may experience symptoms such as anxiety or depression during pregnancy or in the year after giving birth.

If you do feel like you may be struggling or suffering with a mental health disorder during or after pregnancy, there is support available. Talking therapies like cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) can be really effective, teaching you coping strategies and techniques to help you get back to enjoying your time as a new parent.

Online CBT is available free on behalf of the NHS for people aged 18 or over and registered with a GP in Surrey. You can refer yourself directly to the service without having to visit your GP.

For further information or to self refer to Ieso Online CBT visit their website: www.iesohealth.com.surrey or telephone IESO on: 0800 074 5560
