Our team may refer you to this page to check if you need to delay, or defer your appointment.

If you answer ‘Yes’ to any of the questions below, then you are on the respiratory pathway and a clinical assessment must be undertaken to determine if your treatment should be deferred – this means you must contact the practice immediately and speak to a team member.

If you answers ‘No’ to all the questions below, then you are on the non-respiratory pathway – however, please let the team know if you are considered to be a vulnerable patient – information on what defines a vulnerable patient can be found here.
