A further update from Burwell Surgery - July 2021
Post 19th July:
An Update from Burwell Surgery
The Prime Minister announced that restrictions in England will lift on Monday, 19th July.
In many ways we welcome the news that the country is removing legal lock down measures. I think that it does make sense to try and get through this wave of infection before the winter with the pressures that this will bring. However, we are concerned that we may have a tough few months ahead. Infection rates and Covid-19 hospital admission rates are rising quickly locally and nationally.
We ask that anyone visiting the surgery building be especially mindful of others around them. There may be people far more vulnerable and susceptible to infection than you are when you visit.
On entering the building you are still strongly request:
- Wear a face covering (unless exempt)
- To sanitise your hands
- And to keep socially distant
I would also strongly encourage you to continue these measures especially in confined spaces or public areas.
Please note that the Covid-19 Delta Variant is much more transmissible than previous versions of Covid-19 and may present with slightly different symptoms.
In addition to the most common symptoms of fever, persistent cough and loss of taste/smell, you may get:
- Blocked / Runny nose
- Aching Muscles
- Long-lasting Headache
- Sore Throat
- Tired and unwell
If you are feeling at all unwell, PLEASE DO NOT VISIT THE PRACTICE. Instead, book a covid-19 test as soon as possible https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test
Or telephone 119.
You may wish to test yourself regularly at home – especially during the peak of the next Covid 19 wave. If you wish to do this you can order lateral flow testing kits from https://www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests
Finally vaccination is absolutely the best way of protecting yourself against Covid-19 infection. If you have not had a vaccination and you are eligible I would strongly advise to you book a vaccination as soon as possible see:
If you wish to discuss any concerns that you may have regarding vaccination please contact the surgery via askmyGP or telephone: 01638 741234 if you do not have access to askmyGP.
