Covid-19

Covid-19 Vaccinations

As I am sure you can understand, we are incredibly busy during these unprecedented times. Could we please ask that you do not call us regarding the Covid-19 vaccination. As soon as you reach government criteria, please be assured we will contact you.   Thank you.
We have joined forces with Sunnyside, Alverton Cape and Rosmellyn and have so far vaccinated over 4500 between all 5 Practices at St Clare Medical Centre.

Keeping You Safe

We have taken great measures here at Morrab surgery to keep you and our staff as safe as possible during the Covid-19 pandemic.

How you can contact us has changed and we are improving on ways to make this as efficient as possible for you.  We are trying to limit face-to-face contact whenever possible and help stop the spread of coronavirus.

Please do not come to the surgery unless you have an appointment.

If you are waiting for a check-up or a flu vaccination, please be assured we will be in touch.

Appointments are being delivered face-to-face, online and over the telephone. We are asking patients to use Klinik on www.morrabsurgery if you are able - this is available 24 hours a day and will mean you do not have to wait in a queue on the telephone.

If you are asked to come into the surgery for a face-to-face appointment, please remember to wear a face covering.

Measures are in place to keep you safe from infection during your visit to the surgery.

Upon arrival, you will need to check your temperature with our new Thermal Imaging Camera.  This is very easy to do - just stand in front of the camera and align your head with the image on the screen.  

Provided you have a normal temperature, the door will automatically unlock, please pull the door to enter and you can either book yourself in on the self check-in monitor or you can go to reception.
 
There is hand sanitiser at the entrance and the exit.

Where possible, could you please exit through the back door - just follow the arrows.  You can either turn right to go to the bottom of Morrab road, left for the top of Morrab road or straight on to go into the town centre.

Coronavirus - Information

Information about the virus

A coronavirus is a type of virus. As a group, coronaviruses are common across the world. Typical symptoms of coronavirus include fever and a cough that may progress to a severe pneumonia causing shortness of breath and breathing difficulties.

Generally, coronavirus can cause more severe symptoms in people with weakened immune systems, older people, and those with long-term conditions like diabetes, cancer and chronic lung disease.

Novel coronavirus (2019-nCov) is a new strain of coronavirus first identified in Wuhan City, China.

 The Government and NHS are well prepared to deal with this virus.

You can help too.

Germs can live on some surfaces for hours.
To protect yourself and others:

  • Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze.
  • Bin the tissue, and to kill the germs, wash your hands with soap and water, or use a sanitiser gel.
  • If you have arrived back from China within 14 days follow the specific advice for returning travellers.

This is the best way to slow the spread of almost any germs, including Coronavirus.
