Information to Patients about Coronavirus:
If you have returned from Wuhan in the last 14 days:
- Call NHS 111 to inform them of your recent travel to the city
- Stay indoors and avoid contact with other people as you would with other viruses
- This means avoiding work, school, public areas or public transport for 14 days after returning from Wuhan. Where possible, ask friends or family to carry out errands on your behalf, avoiding them visiting your home unless to drop off food.
- If you develop a fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat or difficulty breathing, you should avoid visiting the Doctor's surgery or local Hospital, please call NHS 111 and continue to follow the above advice. Please do not leave your home until you have been given advice by a clinician.
You may be aware that there has been an increase in the number of measles cases in England with some local outbreaks. Measles is one of the most infectious diseases known and is spread through the air and in tiny droplets that come out of the nose and mouth of the infected person.
The government are encouraging Doctors to check that every child has had two doses of the MMR vaccine and if they haven't, to book in with the nurse at the next available appointment.
There is more information on the NHS Choices website.
Rosmellyn Surgery has now settled into St Clare Medical Centre.
Our new address is: St Clare Medical Centre, St Clare Street, Penzance, Cornwall, TR18 3DX. Our telephone number remains the same 01736 330909.
The St Clare Medical Centre houses Rosmellyn Surgery, Alverton Practice and Sunnyside Surgery.
The purpose-built medical centre has state of art facilities including plenty of patient car parking.
On arrival for your appointments you will continue to be greeted by friendly faces from each of the practices in our brand-new reception area. Staff members will direct you to the appropriate waiting areas ready for your appointment. Each Practice continues to work exactly as it does now, the only difference being the location.
St Clare Medical Centre can be accessed via bus routes A17, 16 and 409. There are also some specific times for Penwith College buses that tend to run early in the morning and during the evening. These buses will drop you opposite the Medical Centre on routes 7, 11A, 18C, 236/7 and 251.
Please continue to make your appointments as normal with our receptionists who will also be more than happy to help with any concerns you may have.
When We Are Closed
Outside of our normal opening hours, you should ring NHS 111 direct – just dial 111. They provide out-of-hours cover in the county. If you need to see the Doctor, you may be asked to attend a local clinic.
If you are bed bound by your illness, or housebound, the doctor will visit you at home.
Details of all consultations are passed to your own doctor at Rosmellyn by 10:00 the following day by fax.
In an emergency, you should still ring 999 for an ambulance.
