Hydration and Covid-19 in Adults

Staying at home and self isolating is having a good effect in slowing down the spread of COVID-19. Taking some activity (walking, cycling, running) every day near your home while avoiding contact with other people, will help with feeling better physically and lift your mood. It is important to drink enough fluid at all times but even more so during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please see the attached Patient Information Leaflet for more information

Change of Usual GP

To ensure patients' have similar waiting times for routine appointments, and that there is a ‘fairer share’ of patients reflecting the number of appointments each GP offers, some patients may find that they have a change of Usual GP.

We promote ‘continuity of care’ and ask that patients see their Usual GP for all non-urgent matters as this is the person who receives hospital letters and results.
