The NHS in England and Public Health England (PHE) are well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to protect patients, our community and NHS staff while ensuring as many services as possible are available to the public.
Steps have been taken to minimise the risk to patients and staff and we are working with individual patients to appropriately manage their care.
If you have symptoms associated with coronavirus including a new continuous cough, a fever, or loss of taste and smell, you are advised to stay at home for 7 days.
Please do not book a GP appointment or attend your GP practice.
If you live with other people, they should stay at home for at least 10 days, to avoid spreading the infection outside the home. After 10 days, anyone you live with who does not have symptoms can return to their normal routine.
But, if anyone in your home gets symptoms, they should stay at home for 7 days from the day their symptoms start. Even if it means they're at home for longer than 10 days. The most up-to-date public guidance is always online at www.nhs.uk/coronavirus
If your symptoms are serious, or get worse, NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need further medical help and advise you what to do.

Like the common cold, coronavirus infection usually occurs through close contact with a person with novel coronavirus via cough and sneezes or hand contact.
A person can also catch the virus by touching contaminated surfaces if they do not wash their hands.
Testing of suspected coronavirus cases is carried out in line with strict guidelines.
This means that suspected cases are kept in isolation, away from public areas of GP surgeries, pharmacies and hospitals and returned home also in isolation. Any equipment that come into contact with suspected cases are thoroughly cleaned as appropriate. Specific guidance has also been shared with NHS staff to help safeguard them and others. Patients can be reassured that their safety is a top priority, and are encouraged to attend all appointments as usual.
Everyone is being reminded to follow Public Health England advice to:
- Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.
Stay at home for 7 days if you have either: a fever, new continuous cough, or loss of taste and smell. Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

NEW SERVICES NOW STARTED IN YOUR AREA
8-8 working across Fleet locality
Three of the Fleet practices have joined forces to offer extended access to GPs and Nurses until 8pm every weekday evening, and Saturday mornings. You may be offered an appointment at a neighbouring practice, or here in Crondall, as part of the extended surgery openings. With your agreement, they will also be able to access your existing patient notes via the computer system. Currently this service is shared between ourselves, doing a late night on Tuesdays, and Branksomewood Road Surgery and Richmond Surgery on the other evenings and Saturday, so you will have to be able to travel to one of those locations to be seen if needed.
Orthopaedic Specialists in the Practice
A completely new service which started in November 2017. We are delighted to have a new member of staff, from Premier Physio Group and employed through the Fleet Network, specifically seeing patients with Orthopaedic issues. Please tell the receptionist if you have an orthopaedic (bone or muscular) problem, and they will book you in directly so your treatment can begin straight away. This is not a physiotherapist but they can refer you on to physio, outpatients, or for an x-ray or injection if needed.
Fleet Paramedic Service
The Fleet practices now share a home visiting service, with two paramedics able to attend house calls, with the idea being that they can get to you much quicker than one of our GPs can. Your doctor will assess a house call request and if deemed appropriate, they will ask the paramedic to attend. They work collaboratively with the team here and report back after each visit. Feedback so far is excellent.
