Coronavirus: COVID 19 Updated Guidance for Fairmore Medical Practice

Please note the following updates to Guidance and how we will be working at Fairmore Medical Practice in the coming weeks.

If you develop a new, continuous cough and/ or high temperature please self-isolate for a minimum of 7 days or until symptoms have subsided. If you cannot cope with your symptoms during this time please contact the practice and will try to arrange a telephone consultation.

Patients that require an urgent appointment will be first offered a telephone consultation, the GP will try to address your problem over the phone, if after triage the GP feels you need to be seen you will at this point be offered a face to face appointment.

You may be contacted prior to any pre-booked appointments to confirm you do not have a cough or temperature.

Prescriptions can now be ordered over the phone to avoid patients attending the practice.

Please do not attend the practice with a cough and/ or high temperature.

We have put these measures in place to protect both patients and staff from exposure to the Covid-19 virus.
