WINSFORD PCN POLICY REGARDING FACE MASKS/COVERINGS


The legal requirement to wear face masks/coverings will come to an end when COVID restrictions are lifted on 19th July 2021.
Winsford GP Practices request that patients continue to wear face masks/coverings within our practices, even beyond 19th July.
This request is made in order to protect our staff, patients and all other service users of our premises, particularly at this point when the pandemic is clearly significant and continues to rise.

eConsultImportant information about the Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We Are "OPEN FOR BUSINESS" As Usual.  GP's are concerned that they are not seeing the patients that really need to be seen due to COVID-19 either because patients think that we are closed OR they are worried about attending surgery due to COVID. 

Please be assured that our patients are segregated and it is safe to contact your surgery if you are worried about your health.  Please see the attached links for information regarding GP's across Cheshire.

The NHS across the Cheshire will be better prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases, if the public follows Public Health England advice.

The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of patients and staff which may mean your patient experience is subject to change.

The Chief Medical Officer announced on Friday 13 March that the country is moving into the ‘Delay’ stage of the response to coronavirus (Covid-19).

The new advice issued by the Chief Medical Officer is to stay at home for 7 days if you have either: 

  • a high temperature or 
  • a new continuous cough


DO NOT
go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or a hospital. You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home. 

Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if: 

  • you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home 
  • your condition gets worse 
  • your symptoms do not get better after 7 days


Only call 111 if you cannot get help online. 

 Stay At Home advice can be found here <https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/self-isolation-advice> .

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. 

Information remains subject to regular change and updates. More information can be found on the NHS website here <https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19>.
