Your GP practice provision during the Coronavirus pandemic 

Residents in Tameside and Glossop can be assured that GP practices are doing everything they can to support during the Coronavirus pandemic.

They are diverting their walk-in contact into increased telephone calls and are actively promoting online consultations to their patients to reduce the risk of the virus spreading.

Whilst GP practices appreciate this is creating increased telephone demand they are working hard to minimise the call waiting times.  Staff have stepped up to meet this demand and are working hard to support patients whilst managing workforce pressures within practices.

Local residents support and patience is appreciated at this time.

Patients are being advised to check their practice website for details about accessing GP online consultation which would enable them to complete and submit a form online which practices use to triage.

Co-Chairs, Drs Asad Ali and Ashwin Ramachandra, at NHS Tameside and Glossop Clinical Commissioning Group said: “Our GP practices are working under enormous pressure due to the outbreak of Coronavirus in addition to their normal daily duties seeing patients who are otherwise unwell.

“Staff are working extremely hard and doing a fantastic job coping with the increase in demand. It is exceptional work and they intend to keep it up through the pandemic crisis. We want to thank each and every one of them for keeping our residents safe and doing so in good spirits.

“We would also encourage everyone to play their part in keeping our much needed NHS staff safe and well during this pandemic by following the self-isolation and social distancing guidelines. Where you can, please access services online and do not go to your GP, pharmacist or hospital if you have either a high temperature or a new and continuous cough”

You do not need to inform NHS 111 if you have symptoms, only use the NHS 111 Online at Coronavirus service if:

  • you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
  • your condition gets worse
  • your symptoms do not get better after 7 days

Only call NHS 111 if you cannot get help online.

How long to stay at home

  • if you have symptoms, stay at home for 7 days
  • if you live with other people, they should stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person got symptoms

If you live with someone who is 70 or over, has a long-term condition, is pregnant or has a weakened immune system, try to find somewhere else for them to stay for 14 days.
