Important information about Coronavirus – COVID-19

We want to let you know that, while you may have heard that one of our patients has recently been tested positive for COVID-19 following foreign travel to an affected country, this person has had no contact at all with this practice since their return to the UK. Consequently there is no increased risk to any other Maltings Surgery patients or staff.

Advice for people returning to the UK and travellers to the UK:

you may need to seek medical advice if you’ve recently travelled to the UK from somewhere with a higher risk of coronavirus.

These places are:

  • Cambodia
  • China
  • Hong Kong
  • Iran
  • Italy – only northern Italy (anywhere north of Pisa, Florence and Rimini)
  • Japan
  • Laos
  • Macau
  • Malaysia
  • Myanmar (Burma)
  • Singapore
  • South Korea
  • Taiwan
  • Tenerife – only the H10 Costa Adeje Palace Hotel
  • Thailand
  • Vietnam

If you’ve been to one of these places in the last 14 days find out what to do using the NHS 111 online coronavirus service.

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

Call 111 if you need to speak to someone.
