Information for shielding patients in relation to COVID-19
The practice is aware that patients have received shielding letters from the Welsh Government over recent weeks. We are currently in the process of contacting all of our shielding patients to reassure them that the practice and services are still available to them and to identify any specific needs they may have. Wherever possible, appointments will be provided by phone, email or online. If you need to be seen, we will contact you to let you know what you should do.
If you have an urgent medical question relating to your existing medical condition, or about the person you are caring for, contact your GP practice, or your specialist hospital care team. Where possible, you will be supported by phone, or online. If your doctor decides you need to be seen, the NHS will contact you to arrange how to do this.
Thank you for your continued support during these difficult times.

Surgery Announcement in relation to COVID- 19 (Coronavirus)
To minimise any risk of exposure to coronavirus, from Friday 13th March 2020 until further notice; we have changed our appointment system.
A decision has been made by the practice to cancel all routine and pre booked appointments.
Patients requesting appointments will be appropriately sign posted to allied health care professionals or triaged by a member of our clinical team.
These measures have been put in place to ensure we are offering appropriate services to the patients of Sunnybank Health Centre, whilst minimising any risk to both patients and staff.
Current UK Government guidance is that patients suffering with new onset persistent cough and / or high temperature (over 37.8 degrees) should self-isolate for 7 days. Should your symptoms worsen during this time, continue to isolate and ring NHS 111 for further advice.
We hope you will see our measures as a positive step and understand that these are in place in order to minimise transmission of coronavirus in the community.
We are very grateful for your understanding and co operation. As you will appreciate, this is a developing situation and we will keep you updated on any further measures we will inevitably need to put in place.
