Welcome to The Loughton Surgery - We have changed all our appointments to Telephone triage to help minimise your risk to infection.
If the clinician feels you need to be seen face to face then this will be arranged for you.
DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY if you have a continuous cough or fever (>37.8 C)
If you have symptoms or have tested positive for coronavirus, you'll usually need to self-isolate for at least 10 days.
If your symptoms get worse seek further guidance from NHS111 online. If you are unable to go online then call NHS111
You'll usually need to self-isolate for 14 days if someone you live with has symptoms or tested positive, or someone in your support bubble has symptoms or tested positive or you've been told by NHS Test and Trace that you've been in contact with someone who has coronavirus
You can request the test by either going online www.nhs.uk/ask-for-a-coronavirus-test or by calling 119
