In consideration of the recent and evolving news with regards to the new Covid strain, we would like to take this opportunity to update our patients and remind those accessing the surgery of some important points.
Sole Bay Health Centre/Bungay Medical Practice would like to remind all patients that face masks/coverings are mandatory in healthcare settings and must be worn.
If you have a cough of any kind, a high temperature/feeling hot or shivery, or flu like symptoms; we ask that you do not attend the surgery in person.
You need to book a free PCR test; you can do this online at Get a free PCR test to check if you have coronavirus (COVID-19) – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
If you do not have internet access you can call ‘119‘
The government guidance remains that if you have symptoms of Covid that you need to have a PCR test, regardless of your vaccine status.
A lateral flow test is not sufficient for detecting covid if you have symptoms. So, we urge all our patients to follow the government advice and continue to help protect yourselves and our communities.
