On 12 February, Boundary House GP Surgery re-opened after being temporarily closed to enable the surgery to be cleaned. All services at the practice are operating normally and there are no confirmed cases of Covid-19 (coronavirus). We are asking people to take simple and common-sense steps like you would with other cold and flu viruses:
• always carry tissues and use them to catch coughs and sneezes, and bin the tissue.
• make sure you wash your hands with soap and water, or use sanitiser gel, if soap and water are not available.
• avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
The NHS is well prepared and all our local services are open as normal.
If you have come back from Wuhan or Hubei Province in the last 14 days, you should stay indoors, avoid contact with other people and call NHS 111 to tell them of your recent travel. Do not come into your GP surgery.
If you get a cough, high temperature or shortness of breath within 14 days of returning from other parts of China (including Macao and Hong Kong), Thailand, Japan, Republic of Korea, Taiwan, Singapore or Malaysia, you should stay indoors, avoid contact with other people and call NHS 111. Do not come into your GP surgery.
