COVID-19 infection

Make sure you mention to healthcare professionals if you have any of the symptoms of COVID-19 :

  • persistent cough
  • and/or high temperature 37.8
  • and/or loss or change to your sense of smell or taste or flu like symptoms

If you have any of these symptoms book a test online or by calling 119

Please see this COVID-Isolating-at-Home-Safety-Netting-Leaflet for people with suspected coronavirus who are isolating at home. The leaflet includes information on when to seek medical advice

We have a supply of pulse oximeters which we can lend to certain patients following an assessment, to detect deterioration in oxygen level and possible signs of severe COVID-19 infection. The indication for home pulse oximeter monitoring will be discussed during a GP consultation

This animation will inform you about COVID, how to measure your oxygen levels (using a pulse oximeter), what the danger signs to look out for are and when to seek urgent help
