    Covid 19 - The National Response

    On 10 May 2020, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland announced the Governments recovery strategy. This involved the launch of an alert system which charts both the national and local picture of COVID-19, and the appropriate response to the pandemic.

    • Level 1 - COVID-19 is not known to be present in the UK

    • Level 2 - COVID-19 is present in the UK, but the number of cases and transmission is low

    • Level 3 - A COVID-19 epidemic is in general circulation

    • Level 4 - A COVID-19 epidemic is in general circulation; transmission is high or rising exponentially

    • Level 5 - As level 4 and there is a material risk of healthcare services being overwhelmed

    As of 19th June 2020 the UK was placed at Level 3.

    Green Valleys Health will continue to utilize web and telephone call appointments and only physically see those patients that have a clinical need to be seen face to face which will be determined by the Clinician.

    The threat of Covid 19 has not diminished; the GP Partners take the health of its patient list and staff very seriously and therefore social distancing remains to keep the possible transference of the virus within confined areas such as the Practice buildings to a minimum.
