Perranuthnoe Covid-19 Help And Support

Hope you are all keeping yourselves safe and well. Here are today's updates:

Marazion Surgery

* IMPORTANT - Please share *

There appears to be a post circulating on social media in regard to contacting your GP for an ‘emergency pack or rescue pack’ if you suffer with either COPD or asthma, which contains antibiotics and steroids.

The post is inaccurate and dangerous. GP surgeries are not routinely offering these 'emergency packs'. If we do so, the system will collapse and we would be unable to cope with the level of demand it would create. We will run out of essential medication for those who truly need it.

Please could patients request their regular medication as normal.

If people are well, they must not request 'emergency/rescue packs'.

If unwell, contact your surgery to receive a telephone ring back from a GP who can make a clinical decision as to whether these treatments are appropriate.

If you think you are showing signs and symptoms of coronavirus (raised temperature and/or a new continuous cough) please self-isolate, and contact NHS 111 online.

Please help us keep the NHS going - don’t share misinformation.

Thank you - Marazion Surgery Team
