Ebola virus disease: an overview
A person infected with Ebola virus will typically develop a fever, headache, joint and muscle pain, sore throat, and intense muscle weakness.
These symptoms start suddenly, between 2 and 21 days after becoming infected, but usually after 5-7 days.
If you feel unwell with the above symptoms within 21 days of coming back from Guinea, Liberia or Sierra Leone, please do not come to the surgery. You should stay at home and immediately telephone 111 or 999 and explain that you have recently visited West Africa.

Summary Care Records - Queensway Surgery - upload on 14 October 2014
A summary care record (SCR) is a secure, electronic patient record which contains limited key information extracted from patients' GP records. It is accessed in situations where such information would otherwise be unavailable (i.e. accident & emergency and out of hours' services). SCRs contain information about a patient's medication, allergies and any previous adverse reactions to medicines. On 14 October 2014 at Queensway Surgery we will be arranging for the key information (as outlined above) to be extracted from patients' records registered with this practice to be uploaded. If you do not wish this information to be shared please pick up an "opt-out" form from the Practice's reception.

Access & Parking
Parking at Queensway: Access is easy - a lift is available to the upper floor and a wheelchair is available for your use. A disabled toilet is also available. Car parking is available for patients while in surgery only. A park-and-pay car park is available in Short Street.
Parking at Family Healthcare Surgery: There is parking behind the Family Healthcare Surgery but the access road is not owned by the Practice and is in a bad state of repair. We cannot take responsibility for any problems or damage caused by the state of this access and would advise alternative parking i.e. the pay and park opposite the Surgery.
