Covid 19 telephone number 119
If you have symptoms or suspect you may have Covid 19, or if you wish to arrange a test, there is a new NHS number to ring - 119.
Please use this number (not 111) for Covid 19 related concerns.
During this challenging time there is a lot of information and advice for patients. We are including links to documents and advice on this page.
We will endeavour to keep everything updated.
If you are in any doubt, the NHS Coronavirus website is an excellent place to look for answers https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/ (click this image to take you there).
A clinical trial exploring treatment for the COVID-19 virus is taking place.
If you experience a new or worsening continuous cough and/or a high temperature and have had it for less than 14 days and are not starting to feel better, please visit https://sentry.phc.ox.ac.uk/prinscreen/SSY (click this image to take you there) to find out more.

New PPE and Support from our Patients - Thank you, Everyone!
Selsey Medical Practice has been overwhelmed by the kindness and support we have been shown by our patients and community during these challenging times.
We are having to work in a very different way at the moment, which is challenging for everyone, but your messages of support and the wonderfully colourful pictures and cards from local children have helped to keep morale up in the practice.
We have received delicious food packages from local businesses and some beautifully made scrubs which have been sewn for our GP’s to wear. We also have 30 vital PPE face shields, cleverly made on someone’s 3D printer, for which we are extremely grateful for as we had none.
