COVID-19

COVID-19

An appointment-only primary care treatment centre has been set up at Musgrove Park surgery to support our local communities through the COVID-19 outbreak.

The centre is just one of the changes we, as GP practices, are making to ensure the safety of our patients and staff during the pandemic.

As many of our patients as possible will be assessed via video and telephone appointments, avoiding unnecessary risk and travel.

On the occasions when our patients with coronavirus symptoms need to see a clinician face-to-face, they will be given an appointment to go to the centre either by their GP or by 111.

The facility is not a testing centre or a walk-in service. Anyone who turns up at the site without an appointment will not be seen.

The centre will enable us to work with our colleagues in practices in the Stour Primary Care Network (PCN), which is a group of GP surgeries in the Ashford area working together, to split patient care across different sites.

It will mean that the normal primary care needs of patients who have COVID-19 symptoms can be met at the centre, while our other local GP practice premises aim to remain virus free.
