Online Appointments Suspended

Due to the recent spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) we have taken the decision to temporarily disable online appointment bookings through SystmOnline. 

We understand that this may inconvenience some of our patients, however at present there is no way to effectively triage patients through this system. Without this ability we put our staff, clinicians and other patients at risk should a pateint enter the surgery with Coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms.

We do not take this decision lightly and hope to re-enable online booking as soon as possible. 

In the mean time, if you need a GP appointment, please call the surgery on the usual number. 


Coronavirus Information

The NHS in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland and Public Health England (PHE) are extremely well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal.

  • Stay indoors and avoid contact with other people as you would with the flu
  • Call NHS 111 

Information for the public is available at gov.uk/coronavirus.

Like the common cold, coronavirus infection usually occurs through close contact with a person with novel coronavirus via cough and sneezes or hand contact. A person can also be infected by touching contaminated surfaces if they do not wash their hands.

The risk of being in close contact with a person with coronavirus or contaminated surfaces is very low at the current time, as members of the public who have visited Wuhan, Hubei province, China are currently in isolation.

Testing of suspected coronavirus cases is carried out in line with strict regulations. This means that suspected cases are kept in isolation, away from public areas of hospitals and GP practices and returned home also in isolation. Any equipment that comes into contact with suspected cases are thoroughly cleaned as appropriate. Specific guidance has also been shared with NHS staff to help safeguard them and others. Patients can be reassured that their safety is a top priority, and are encouraged to attend all appointments as usual.

Everyone is being reminded to follow Public Health England advice to:

  • Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are unwell. 

You can find the latest information and advice from Public Health England at www.gov.uk/coronavirus.
