CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC PATIENT INFORMATION

Keep Wales safe:

  • always observe social distancing
  • wash your hands regularly
  • if you meet another household, outside your extended household, stay outdoors
  • work from home if you can

Stay at home if you or anyone in your extended household has symptoms.

If you have symptoms get a test.

Face masks or coverings are now mandatory in most public areas

We understand that some patients will be anxious about wearing a mask especially those with certain medical conditions. 

GP’s are not required or in a position to provide exemption letters for patients who believe they should be exempt from wearing a face covering. 

The current guidance suggests there is no requirement for the public to provide medical evidence for exemption from wearing face masks therefore a self- declaration should be sufficient.

 Please go to the GOV.UK link below for more information on the use of face coverings.   https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/face-coverings-when-to-wear-one-and-how-to-make-your-own/face-coverings-when-to-wear-one-and-how-to-make-your-own

For specific requirements in reference to public transport, shops or other areas where masks are required please contact those specific companies for further information.

PATIENT INFORMATION

Health services are under severe pressure.  GP Practices have set in place contingency plans to deal with the pandemic and therefore usual appointment procedures and services will have significant restrictions in order to reduce the risk to patients and staff, and maintain services.

We are all taking the necessary precautions with the aim of limiting the traffic in and out of surgeries and screening any patients entering the paremises for appointments to minimise the risk to you and others.  Please see your own practice website for more detail on access which you can get to here via the Penderi Cluster website CLICK HERE
