Like the common cold, coronavirus infection usually occurs through close contact with a person with novel coronavirus via cough and sneezes or hand contact. A person can also be infected by touching contaminated surfaces if they do not wash their hands.

Testing of suspected coronavirus cases is carried out in line with strict regulations. This means that suspected cases are kept in isolation, away from public areas of the hospital and returned home also in isolation. Any equipment that come into contact with suspected cases are thoroughly cleaned as appropriate. Specific guidance has also been shared with NHS staff to help safeguard them and others. Patients can be reassured that their safety is a top priority, and are encouraged to attend all appointments as usual.

Everyone is being reminded to follow Public Health England advice to:

  • Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.

What should I do if I fall ill when I’m away from home?

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can ask to be registered as a temporary patient at a nearby GP practice for up to three months. This process allows you to make use of a local practice but still remain a patient of your permanent GP practice at home. However, after three months, if you still wish to access this practice you will be required to permanently register.

If you wish to register with us as a temporary patient simply contact the practice directly.


Diabetes prevention programme

The hope is that having learned more about diabetes and the diabetes prevention programme, you can make an informed choice about whether or not this is something you would like to participate in. If having learned about the programme you could like to participate in it, please call 0330 2233706 to sign up to the programme.



Type 2 Diabetes

Over 5 million people in the UK are at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. Type 2 represents 90% of all diabetes and is largely caused by lifestyle factors. The good news is that it can be avoided by making changes in diet and exercise habits. 


To find out more about what diabetes is and how can it affect you please click here to download the LWTC Type 2 Diabetes patient Information leaflet. Alternatively you can visit NHS choices and obtain this information.



The prevention programme

To join the Healthier You: NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme you will need to be referred by a healthcare professional - most likely your GP or Nurse - based on the results of a blood test.

The Healthier You: NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme is designed for people who are at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. Some of the known risk factors can't be changed, but there are others you have control of every day and you can affect your level of risk by the choices you make.


The programme is about providing structured support in a relaxed and friendly environment and it’s all about you taking control.
