Our Wigan Road surgery temporarily closed to patients yesterday (Wednesday) due to a patient attending the practice with symptoms similar to Coronavirus.
The surgery closed to patients as a precautionary measure for 20 minutes, while a deep clean of the area where the patient had been took place, in line with guidelines from Public Health England. The surgery fully re-opened to patients after this.
As the patient had been in contact with someone who had recently traveled to mainland Europe, NHS 111 advised them to self-isolate.
Practice Manager Amanda Geary said: “Our premises closed temporarily as a precautionary measure for a small amount of time but now is fully re-open.
“We would remind patients that if they suspect they may have Coronavirus and have symptoms that they should not attend the practice but look at NHS 111 web pages for advice.”
