Our telephone number remains the same, our new temporary address is:

The Lister Practice at Queens Road Surgery

Novel Coronavirus

COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It’s caused by a virus called coronavirus.

What’s the risk of coronavirus in the UK?

The UK Chief Medical Officers have raised the risk to the public from low to moderate.

Health professionals are working to contact anyone who has been in close contact with people who have coronavirus.

What’s the risk of coronavirus for travellers?

There are some countries and areas where there’s a higher chance of coming into contact with someone with coronavirus.

See the NHS.uk coronavirus advice for travellers.

Symptoms of coronavirus

The symptoms of coronavirus are:

  • a cough
  • a high temperature
  • shortness of breath

But these symptoms do not necessarily mean you have the illness.

The symptoms are similar to other illnesses that are much more common, such as cold and flu.

Check if you need medical help

NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need medical help and advise you what to do.

Use this service if:

  • you think you might have coronavirus
  • in the last 14 days you’ve been to a country or area with a high risk of coronavirus – see the NHS.uk coronavirus advice for travellers
  • you’ve been in close contact with someone with coronavirus
Start now

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Call 111 if you need to speak to someone.

How to self-isolate if you’re asked to

If there’s a chance you could have coronavirus, you may be asked to stay away from other people (self-isolate).

This means you should:

  • stay at home
  • not go to work, school or public places
  • not use public transport or taxis
  • ask friends, family members or delivery services to do errands for you
  • try to avoid visitors to your home – it’s OK for friends, family or delivery drivers to drop off food

You may need to do this for up to 14 days to help reduce the possible spread of infection.

Read more coronavirus self-isolation advice.

How coronavirus is spread

Because it’s a new illness, we do not know exactly how coronavirus spreads from person to person.

Similar viruses are spread in cough droplets.

It’s very unlikely it can be spread through things like packages or food.

Do I need to avoid public places?

Most people can continue to go to work, school and other public places.

You only need to stay away from public places (self-isolate) if advised to by the 111 online coronavirus service or a medical professional.

How to avoid catching or spreading coronavirus

Do

  • wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
  • always wash your hands when you get home or into work
  • use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • put used tissues in the bin straight away and wash your hands afterwards
  • try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell

Don’t

  • do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean

Treatment for coronavirus

There is currently no specific treatment for coronavirus.

Antibiotics do not help, as they do not work against viruses.

Treatment aims to relieve the symptoms while your body fights the illness.

You’ll need to stay in isolation away from other people until you’ve recovered.

Carers Rights Day celebration: Thursday 21 November 2019

We have teamed up with the Carers UK to celebrate Carers Rights Day on Thursday 21 November 2019. This is a national day that helps to ensure unpaid carers are aware of their rights and where they can get help and support.  See poster and event details below.

Event Details

On Thursday 21 November 2019, Carers UK will have an information stall at Falmouth Road Surgery from 10.00am to 12.30pm and from 1.30pm to 4.00pm.

At the information stall, you will be able to find out how Carers UK can provide help and support to you – or a family member, friend or neighbour who may be a carer.

All patients, friends and family are welcome to attend the event.

We want to know if you are a carer

Please let us know if you are a carer. Carers are people who provide unpaid support to a partner, relative or friend to live independently. Without this help, their health or wellbeing would deteriorate.

If you are a carer, the practice will be able to offer you additional support to meet your own health needs.

Find out more about information about carers >>

About Carers UK

Carers UK is a national charity. Carers UK runs a network of local branches and contacts to support carers. Their goal is to give you expert information and advice that is tailored to your situation, to champion your rights and support you in finding new ways to manage at home, at work, or wherever you are.

Lister Practice: NEW telephone number and system from Friday 26 April 2019

New telephone system and number for The Lister Practice – improving your service from Friday 26th April 2019

Dear Patients,

Your feedback is very important to us, and is helping to improve and shape the care that we deliver at The Lister Practice.

We know from the experiences that you have shared with us that you are unsatisfied with the current telephone system, and that you can often be on hold for quite some time, as well as sometimes experience disconnection whilst in conversation with one of our team members.

We have been working hard with NEL CSU who provide the current telephone system, and in January 2019 we took the firm decision to change telephony provider, as we do not consider the NEL CSU system to be fit-for-purpose having explored all possible options for its improvement.

From Friday 26th April 2019, the new number for The Lister Practice will be 0203 474 5570. The new number is part of a brand new telephone system that we have invested in for our patients, and this is designed to provide you with an improved service, thank you for your patience during the change and sorry for any inconvenience you may experience in adjusting to the new number.

The current number (020 3049 8430) cannot be transferred to us, and will instead play a permanent message stating:

“Please note, the number for The Lister Practice has now changed. The new number is 0203 474 5570, that’s 0203 474 5570. Please store this new number. Your call will not be diverted.”

If you have any queries or concerns and would like to write to us, please email us on souccg.listerpractice@nhs.net, thank you.
