Welcome to Arbury Road Surgery
Arbury Road Surgery is supporting vital COVID 19 research. As part of this, we are helping to carry out a national priority research study called PRINCIPLE. If you have symptoms of COVID 19, are aged 65 or over, OR are aged 50-64 and have an existing health condition, you may be eligible to join this important study. If you'd like to discuss taking part in PRINCIPLE, please contact us. Please see www.phctrials.ox.ac.uk/principle-trial for full details of this study.

Symptoms and what to do
Do not leave your home if you have either:
- 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)
To protect others, do not go to places like a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Stay at home.
If you think you have symptoms of Coronavirus visit www.111.nhs.uk/covid-19

Once the request has been submitted, you will then be contacted by the Practice Team, to arrange an appointment within the identified timeframe (as outlined in the outcome of your symptom checker).
The information you provide will be shared with our clinical team (where appropriate) and will assist in providing robust information of your problem to the required clinical team member prior to your appointment.
