Self isolation and social distancing information/support

The NHS is well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases and has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff.

If you, or anyone in your household, has Coronavirus symptoms please stay at home for 14 days.  These symptoms are:

  • a high temperature - you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
  • and/or a new, continuous cough (this means you've started coughing repeatedly)

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you are staying at home. Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you are staying at home.

Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if you think you have symptoms or:

  • you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
  • your condition gets worse
  • your symptoms do not get better after 7 days

GP Surgeries are not providing sick notes for self isolation

Improved Access

Somerset has been chosen by NHS England to introduce a new scheme that will allow you to make an appointment to see a health professional in a GP practice outside the usual working hours of GP surgeries.  The scheme works by getting a gropu of GP practices together so that they can open up in turn at the new times.

The following surgeries are offering Improved Access to all patients in the North Sedgemoor Federation.  If you cannot access an appointment at your own surgery it is now possible to access available appointments at other surgeries in your area,  please ask at Reception:

  • Brent Area Medical Centre
  • Burnham and Berrow Medical Centre
  • Cheddar Medical Centre
  • Highbridge Medical Centre
