IMPORTANT NOTICE - CORONAVIRUS
If you suspect you have coronavirus, PLEASE DO NOT COME TO SURGERY. Please stay at home and go onto the NHS 111 website (https://111.nhs.uk/) or call 111 for advice. Do not use public transport or taxis. Do not go to work, school or public places. Do not just present yourself to any GP surgery or hospital without seeking advice first.

Covid Vaccine Information – currently the practice is in the process of beginning the second wave of making appointments for vaccinations. All patients aged 80 or over should by now have received their vaccination, if this is not the case for yourself and you fall into the over 80 category then please contact us ASAP. We will now be contacting further patients who fall into the aged over 70 category. If you do not fall within either of the above categories then please do not contact the surgery to discuss when you will receive the vaccine as this only ties up our receptionists time which could be spent elsewhere. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
In light of the ongoing COVID-19 situation, Concept House and Sefton Road Surgery are following advice from NHS England and moving to a total telephone triage system. This means that rather than offering a face to face appointment, you can contact the a doctor by submitting an e-consult or requesting a phone call. If the Doctor wishes to see you, they will then offer you a face to face appointment. This is designed to reduce the number of people physically attending the surgery to protect staff and patients from COVID-19. The surgery doors will remain closed until further notice, only those with an appointment given by a Doctor or HCA should attend.
If you require a repeat prescription, please use our online services or prescription post boxes at the front of the surgeries. Your prescriptions will be sent to your local pharmacy - please contact reception if you do not already have this set up.
If you require an isolation note (sick note for those who are self-isolating), please visit the 111 website. We will be unable to provide a fit note for patients who are self isolating.
Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms
Stay at home and arrange a test if you have any of the following:
- a high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
- a new, continuous cough – this means you've started coughing repeatedly
- loss of/change in smell or taste
You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home. However, if you have worsening symptoms or have become breathless, please contact 111.
If you have a positive Covid-19 test, you will be contacted and given advice on how long you should isolate. You will be contacted by test and trace who will further advise people who you have been in contact with of their need to isolate.
If you live with someone who is 70 or over, has a long-term condition, is pregnant or has a weakened immune system, try to find somewhere else for them to stay for 10 days.
If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible.
