In Central Vale we are running a hot centre in Porthceri Surgery.
This is where a clinician will assess you if are significantly unwell, and Covid-19 may be the cause. Please note the vast majority of patients with Covid-19, particularly those who are young and have no medical conditions will not require examination, and are expected to stay at home in self isolation. We will only be examining you when this is essential, to ensure we are not spreading the virus.
Please note at present the majority of patients being seen in this centre with a fever, cough and other symptoms do not have Covid-19, but it is not possible to know this hence the reason for taking these precautions.
You will be asked to follow a strict procedure on arrival, including wearing a mask, and will be examined by a clinician wearing protective equipment. Full details of the process will be explained if you are asked to attend the centre. It is vital you do not attend this centre if you have not been asked. It is also very important that you arrive at the time requested.
