The PRINCIPLE Trial 

The PRINCIPLE trial aims to find treatments for COVID-19 for older people. We want to find medicines that can help people with COVID-19 symptoms get better quickly and stop them needing to go to hospital. The trial is recruiting participants through this website and also through GP practices across the UK.

Online appointment booking

Following guidance from NHS England we have changed the type of appointment available for online booking.  The only appointments available to book online are telephone triage slots.  The doctor will phone the patient around the appointment time and do a consultation over the telephone.   A  follow-up face to face appointment can then be booked if required. We are taking this action to minimise the coronavirus infection risk.  We apologise for any inconvenience this action may cause and will update patients regularly with any further changes – thank you.

Dental Problems

From time to time patients will present to us, most usually with either dental pain of dental related infection. The General Medical Council (GMC) and British Medical Association (BMA) guidance is very clear, as follows;

“GPs should not attempt to manage a condition requiring dental skills unless they have the appropriate training and expertise. Both the civil courts and the GMC require doctors to have appropriate skills for any treatment they offer.” It goes on to advise that the treatment of dental problems is not the responsibility of GPs and that the patient should be advised to contact local urgent or emergency dental services, or in severe circumstances the nearest accident and emergency department.

Further information regarding this advice can be found on the following link;
