Welcome to The Surgery @ Aylestone

Our aim is to provide a modern caring General Practice service with traditional values.
 
IMPORTANT PATIENT INFORMATION
For patients concerned that they may have coronavirus or may have come into contact with someone who has, DO NOT attend the surgery. 
The NHS 111 online service has created coronavirus pages that tell patients what they should do based on their particular circumstances.  These can be accessed online at www.111.nhs.uk/service/covid-19 
However, if you do not have internet access please ring NHS 111.
Symptoms to look out for are cough, runny nose, sore throat, fever and difficulty breathing.

 

COVID-19 UPDATE 13.03.2020
From today the public are being advised to stay at home (self-isolate) without any testing for COVID-19, regardless of travel history or contact with confirmed cases, if they have:
a. A new continuous cough
OR
b. High temperature (of 37.8 degrees centigrade or higher)

 

The geographic element of the case definition has now been removed. Travel and contact history are no longer important for diagnosis, which is on the basis of symptoms alone. If people who have travelled do not have symptoms they do not need to stay at home, regardless of their travel history. Individuals should stay at home (self-isolate) for 7 days from the onset of symptoms following the current advice. If someone has serious symptoms they cannot manage at home they should use NHS 111 online (people should only call NHS111 if they cannot get online).

 

After 7 days of self-isolation, people who feel better and no longer have a high temperature can return to their normal routine. If they have not had any signs of improvement after 7 days and have not already sought medical advice, they should use NHS111 online (people should only call NHS111 if they cannot get online) before they leave their home or let visitors in.

 

Cough may persist for several weeks in some people, despite the coronavirus infection having cleared. A persistent cough alone does not mean someone must continue to stay at home for more than 7 days.
