Holiday Insurance Cancellation Letters
We regret that in these exceptional circumstances the practice is currently unable to write any letters for patients who are making a holiday refund insurance claim.
This service is non contractual and as such we are under no obligation to offer this. We hope you will understand that the GPs need to focus upon the clinical needs of their patients at this difficult time.
The Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) now advises British people against all non-essential travel worldwide.
As such, insurance claims can be requested on this basis. Full details can be read at https://www.gov.uk/guidance/travel-advice-novel-coronavirus
Are you a Vulnerable Patient
Advice for people at higher risk – those who are 70 or older, are pregnant or have a condition that increases the risks from coronavirus.
Mental Wellbeing During Covid-19
COVID-19 means we are all experiencing an unprecedented situation. Everyone reacts differently, and we will have periods where we find it more difficult to deal with. It’s okay not to feel okay. Talking to someone can often help.
Visit NHS Every Mind Matters for advice, practice advice and support groups.
If you cannot wait to see a doctor and feel unable to cope or keep yourself safe, it’s important to get support.
Covid 19 Additional Information
When attending the surgery, we kindly ask that you wear your own face covering/mask at all times unless requested to remove it by your GP or nurse. The exceptions to this are children under the age of 11, those with disabilities, those with breathing difficulties or those who are travelling with someone who relies on lip reading. You are also advised to use your own toilet and wash your hands before coming to the surgery to reduce contact within the building. Thank you.
