Due to the increased concern surrounding Coronavirus (COVID-19), there has been a high influx of patients contacting The Elms. Our reception and clinical teams are doing their upmost to ensure the best information is provided to all of our patients, but in some cases we are not able to provide more specific information regarding Coronavirus. 

In these situations, our staff has been advised to refer patients to NHS 111 who are able to provide more detailed information regarding Coronavirus. Due to the high volumes of calls NHS 111 receives from across the country, they've also provided us with some helpful links that could help alleviate anyone's concerns regarding the recent outbreak.
