Advice to Practice Staff regarding communication with Travellers from Wuhan

If patients are not experiencing symptoms then the advice is to remain at home and self-isolate; the incubation period, time between potentially exposed to a virus and experiencing symptoms is up to 14 days, so venturing out or attending medical facilities could put others (public, patients and staff) at undue risk.


Testing for the virus is available at specialist locations but will only be done for patients who are experiencing symptoms and fulfil other criteria such as travelled to Wuhan within that last 14 days or can confirm contact with a confirmed carrier of the virus.

If a patient presents at Timperley Health Centre.

If a patient presents themselves at the Practice and declares recent travel history the immediate action to be taken is:

  • Isolate the patient (Quarantine).
  • Provide the patient with a face mask (stocks available in the Reception area)
  • If the disclosure occurs in a clinical room the clinician is to leave the patient in the room immediately and inform them that they will call the patient on the desk phone to discuss further.
  • If the disclosure occurs within the Waiting area then patient is to be escorted to:
  • Treatment Room (Room 39) with the Timperley Health Centre (Westwoods) Emergency Mobile: 07825696020
  • Avoid physical examination of a suspected case. The patient should remain in the room with the door closed. Belongings and waste should remain in the room.
  • Advise others not to enter the room. If a clinical history still needs to be obtained or completed, do this by telephone.
  • The patient should be directed to the dedicated staff toilet. Instruct them to not touch anything or anyone when walking to the toilet. Instruct the patient to wash their hands thoroughly after toileting.
  • A member of staff is to phone the patient with the following aims:
  • Attain information regarding travel and symptoms
  • Ensure that the patient is kept calm.
