From today, the general clinical case definition for COVID-19 has been updated to include loss of or change in smell or taste.
It is now: New continuous cough OR fever OR loss of/change in smell or taste.
Everyone, including health and social care workers, should self isolate if they develop a new continuous cough or fever or loss of/change in smell or taste. Your household should also self-isolate for 14 days as per the current guidelines and you should stay at home for 7 days, or longer if you still have symptoms other than cough or less of sense of smell or taste.
Existing Channel View patients please continue to phone us, if you were originally a patient at Teignmouth Medical Group you will need to continue to phone them. You can find the relevant phone numbers above.
Due to coronavirus, please help protect other patients and our staff by using our online service called eConsult, available 24/7, via the banners above. eConsult is a service for patients wanting to contact one of our GPs and you will get a response within one working day. You can also use this service for Administrative requests such as to discuss recent tests or ask for a sick note.
If you can, use eConsult instead of phoning as our lines are incredibly busy. Please do not use this service for prescription requests, you may however use the service in order to ask us to register you online to order your repeat prescriptions.
