Welcome to Dr Hallikeri & Partners
Dear Patient, We are aware that currently everyone is going through a difficult time with many people being directly affected with Covid-19 either with lock-down, shielding or self-isolating. We would like to reassure you that we are providing telephone assessments, video consultations, online consultations and face to face consultations both for acute illness and chronic conditions. The hospital is continuing to provide suspected cancer assessments for people that have symptoms that may indicate underlying/sinister cause or malignancy. Although this list is not all encompassing we would ask that you contact us as you normal would if you develop or are concerned about anything including:
Unexplained weight loss,
Concerns over altered bowel habit, especially if associated with blood,
New lumps in the abdomen and abdominal pain,
Coughs for more than 4 weeks,
Coughing up blood,
Swallowing problems especially if progressive,
Blood in urine,
Any changes to moles that you are concerned about,
Progressive headache especially if associated with other signs and symptoms,
Jaundice (yellowing of skin),
Please do not attend our GP Practice, the pharmacy or hospital if you have developed
a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal.
Please note a face to face appointment will only be offered once it is deemed necessary by an appropriate clinician.
If you are asked to attend surgery please wear an appropriate face mask or face covering to protect yourself, staff and other patients.
