A message has been posted on the Potterells Medical Centre website advising anyone who might have been in contact with someone with coronavirus, or are experiencing symptoms, to stay away.

The notice, visible only to registered patients who log on to the ‘Patient Online Services’ page, ask those who have recently travelled to a number of Asian countries, have been experiencing certain symptoms, or have been in the presence of a confirmed case of coronavirus, to call NHS 111 instead of visiting Potterells.

The notice (embedded below) reads:
“Please do not book a GP appointment or attend your GP Practice if you’ve visited or travelled through mainland China, Hong Kong, Japan, Macau, Malaysia, Republic of Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, or Thailand and have symptoms of cough, fever or shortness of breath within 2 weeks of returning, or if you have symptoms of cough, fever or shortness of breath after being in contact with someone with a confirmed case of coronavirus. Please call NHS 111 instead.”
