As the COVID-19 situation continues to develop, we are forced to modify the way we run the practice in order to meet our legal (and ethical) obligations.
These changes are hardly convenient for anyone, nevertheless, these challenging times demand that we adapt.
Please do not enter the LFHC premises if you have any COVID-19 symptoms. If you have any symptoms on the day of your appointment you may phone us to discuss your appointment with the doctor.
COVID-19 affects different people in different ways.
MOST COMMON SYMPTOMS:
LESS COMMON SYMPTOMS:
aches and pains
loss of taste or smell
a rash on skin, or discolouration of fingers or toes
difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
chest pain or pressure
loss of speech or movement
Only telephone appointments can be made online.
Telephone appointments are suitable for medical certificates, prescriptions, discussing test results, and other medical conditions if you have any COVID-19 symptoms.
Please phone the surgery to make face-to-face appointments
Face-to-face appointments at the surgery are suitable for any visit, provided that you have no COVID-19 symptoms.
We have placed a doorbell on the front door. Patients will be required push the button and wait for staff to allow them to enter. The door will remain locked at all other times. The button will be sterilized after use.
If you find yourself in the building for whatever reason please ensure you are following physical distancing policies. Keep your distance from others (1.6m); do not contact others if it can be avoided (no handshakes, hugs etc); attend alone if possible.
As we are navigating the ongoing pandemic it is not always possible to maintain regular hours of availability.
The below opening hours will vary at times as staff can become unavailable unpredictably.
We apologize for the inconvenience this will cause. Please remain patient and understanding with us while we navigate this situation together.
