Noticeboard

All 5 GP Practices in Winsford have been running the Red Clinic for suspected Covid-19 patients for a couple of weeks now. We would like to thank everyone for their support in this, particularly the car park marshals, Friends of Winsford Town Park and the Town Council.

There are some really important points we would like to make:

  1. This is NOT a drop-in clinic. If you feel you need to see a doctor because of possible covid-19 you need to access NHS 111 (preferably on-line), or your GP practice if you cannot get through. The Red Clinic is by appointment only.
  1. If you are invited to attend the Red Clinic you should drive there with windows closed, indicate to the marshals that you are for the Red Clinic, and stay in your car with your windows still closed until you are advised to do otherwise.
  1. If you are invited to attend the Red Clinic you should ONLY drive to the clinic and back home again.
  1. The Red Clinic is NOT a testing centre, do not ask to come to this clinic just because you want a test.

 

Self Care

Self Care is about looking after yourself in a healthy way.  It can be anything from doing some small exercises, managing common illnesses e.g. colds and flu, headaches or living with and understanding your long term condition e.g. Asthma, COPD or Diabetes.

The Pharmacy can be a big help in promoting self care and this can be your first port of call as opposed to coming to see the Doctor.  There are also a number of excellent websites with a wealth of information on:
