The surgery does not have access to any coronavirus tests. If you need a test we recommend logging into NHS website every 1-2 hours to find newly released test slots. You are likely to have to travel out of Harrogate. You must isolate your entire household if anyone has a new cough if any type , or a temperature above 37.8C or loss of taste or smell. These are covid symptoms .
Please only contact the surgery if you or your child appear unwell enough to need a GP examination. Please look online for information and try to avoid calling the GP for this information . The NHS website is very helpful. North Yorkshire is experiencing a spike in Covid cases. Please be extra vigilant about hygiene and social distancing. The surgery is under heavy pressure and we want to look after everyone . Please use our services carefully. Thank you.

Important information about the coronavirus (COVID-19)
Stay at home to stop coronavirus spreading
Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus.
You should only leave the house for 1 of 4 reasons:
- shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible
- one form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household
- any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
- travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home
These 4 reasons are exceptions – even when doing these activities, you should be minimising time spent outside of the home and ensuring you are 2 metres apart from anyone outside of your household.

- a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
- a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
- a loss of, or change to, your sense of smell or taste
To protect others, do not go to places like a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Stay at home.
