Changes to doctors’ appointments

There have been some changes lately in how your doctor might be able to see you. Many people in isolation or in high-risk groups will be able to do a video or phone consult for no out of pocket cost. Your GP may also offer Telehealth consults for a private fee if you do not fit into one of these groups. Many doctors will be trying to do as much as possible on the phone and then will advise if you need to be seen in person or sent for tests.

If you have mild upper respiratory tract symptoms eg sore throat, runny nose, you will probably get better without prescription medicine. STAY HOME until you are well and use simple measures like fluids, rest, gargles, paracetamol and hot lemon and honey. Please avoid going to the doctor unless you are really struggling but please CALL FIRST. If you fit the testing criteria (recent travel AND fever/symptoms or a close contact) for COVID-19 get tested at a public clinic and self-isolate until you are cleared. If you are very sick and having breathing difficulties you should go to the hospital.

Any non-urgent routine visits should be delayed until this is over eg for skin checks or pap smears.

Flu shots will be available soon.

Keeping unwell people out of our waiting rooms will help protect people who really need to be there. It will also help protect the staff in the surgery so we can continue to offer services. Take advantage of this change. It is safer for you and your family, safer for your doctor and their staff and safer for the community.

So wash your hands well, stay at home as much as possible, avoid handshakes and high fives and hopefully this will be over soon and life can return to normal.
