Covid19
  • Patients who have had Covid19 may still be experiencing various side-effects and symptoms of the condition after many months since contracting the virus – so called “long covid”.
  • As you find yourself recovering from COVID-19 you may still be coming to terms with the impact the virus has had on both your body and mind. These changes should get better over time, some may take longer than others, but there are things you can do to help.
  • Your COVID Recovery helps you to understand what has happened and what you might expect as part of your recovery.
  • This post-covid19 patient information pack contains some useful information and support for managing these symptoms.
  • More information on further help and support during the Covid19 pandemic can be found on our website  – follow this link to our “Support during Covid19” section.

Dentistry

We get many patients requesting help with dental problems. Please note that GPs are not indemnified for providing dental care, and all dental problems should be dealt with by the dental service. 

Diabetes

It is important that patients with diabetes are aware of what to do when they are ill, in order to maintain good diabetic control and to prevent Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA), which is a dangerous and serious complication of diabetes. Click here to find more about DKA.
