Self isolation advice is available on the NHS Choices website and on the Government website. We also have additional support in place to minimise contact with others in reference to the arrangement of appointments. Further information is available at the following links:

All medical appointments should be discussed in advance with a patient's designated medical contact, so the surgery or hospital can take steps to minimise contact with others.
