Welcome to The Surgery @ Aylestone
Our aim is to provide a modern caring General Practice service with traditional values.
We are very fortunate to have been involved in research with the RCGP for many years. One of their current research projects is self swabbing for COVID-19.
If you have symptoms confirmed by the COVID-19 checker (link below) for LESS THAN 7 days please contact the Surgery URGENTLY to arrange collection of a self swab kit. We will get the results very quickly which will allow us to guide you on self isolation and contact tracing. This will help to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
A clinical trial exploring treatment for the COVID-19 virus is also taking place. If you experience a new or worsening continuous cough and/or a high temperature and have had it for less than 14 days and are not starting to feel better OR you have had a positive test for SARS-Co-V2 infection which was taken fewer than 15 days ago, AND are unwell with symptoms of COVID-19, please click here to find out more.
