Coronavirus Update

26/03/20

Our thanks once more to the supportive team here at Bore Street and our patients as it has become necessary to make further unprecedented changes in response to the current situation. 

In line with official guidance and with the support of our team and governing bodies we are now only able to offer telephone advice by way of a triage system. This will be undertaken by one of your regular team here including a dentist and two nurses who will be taking your urgent enquiries.

Please call the practice on: 01543 262092 Monday to Friday 09.00 - 12.00 if you are in need of urgent advice. 

We may need to return your call as appropriate later in the day if our team are all busy during these times.

This is a constantly changing situation which is being reviewed throughout the day, every day. We will post updates as often as is required.

Look after yourselves and as always, Stay Safe.

Managing Toothache at Home

Stay at home if you have either;

Stay at home if you have either:

  • 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)

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

Use the 111 online coronavirus service to find out what to do.

The measures we are taking proactively are a proportionate response to the ongoing COVID-19 developments and will help ensure we can best meet the needs of our patients during a sustained period of pressure.   

The situation is being reviewed daily.

The latest NHS guidance on coronavirus is available via the link below.
