COVID-19 (CORONA VIRUS) UPDATE 22/03/2020
We are sorry to give you disappointing news, but we hope this won’t come as a complete surprise. We have decided to close Freyja Medical with immediate effect and cancel all booked appointments for the weeks to come.
We want to reassure you that we will be working from home during this period and we will do our utmost to support you through these difficult times. If you feel you need to speak to one of our doctors or nurses about your skin problem please email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or ring us (01978 799688) and we will try to get back to you as soon as we can. For any concerns about Covid 19 (Corona Virus) or non-dermatological concerns, you should contact your GP or 111. Please do not visit a clinic, pharmacy or A&E if you have symptoms without getting telephone advice first.
Freyja is a successful and solvent business and there is no risk of us closing permanently. We are not laying off any of our fantastic staff and we will open the clinic as soon as it is safe and reasonable to do so. We will follow guidance from the government and our regulators in this regard.
The decision to close now has been taken after careful consideration of multiple factors related to the Covid 19 pandemic and the changing situation. These include the need to protect you, our patients, our staff and wider society from the further rapid spread of the virus. Our professional bodies and regulators are also now telling us to cancel all non-essential and routine appointments and procedures. Our doctors and nurses are also being redeployed to more front-line services.
Please visit our website www.freyjamedical.com or social media pages for updates on when we will open again and other important information relating to the care of our patients.
We encourage all of you to follow the official advice and to do so as strictly as possible. This is vital to slow the spread of this virus, which is proving deadly for the elderly, people with underlying health concerns, but also for some young and healthy individuals. Social distancing and isolation WILL save lives – this is everyone’s responsibility. We wish you all the very best in these unprecedented times and look forward to seeing you all again soon.

This guidance is for everyone, including children. It advises on social distancing measures we should all be taking to reduce social interaction between people in order to reduce the transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19). It is intended for use in situations where people are living in their own homes, with or without additional support from friends, family and carers. If you live in a residential care setting guidance is available.
This group includes those who are:
Note: there are some clinical conditions which put people at even higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19. If you are in this category, next week the NHS in England will directly contact you with advice about the more stringent measures you should take in order to keep yourself and others safe. For now, you should rigorously follow the social distancing advice in full, outlined below.
People falling into this group are those who may be at particular risk due to complex health problems such as:
Social distancing measures are steps you can take to reduce social interaction between people. This will help reduce the transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19).
They are to:
Everyone should be trying to follow these measures as much as is practicable.
We strongly advise you to follow the above measures as much as you can and to significantly limit your face-to-face interaction with friends and family if possible, particularly if you:
This advice is likely to be in place for some weeks.
There are general principles you can follow to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:
The same guidance applies to the general population and those at increased risk of severe illness form coronavirus (COVID-19). If you develop symptoms of COVID-19 (high temperature and/or new and continuous cough), self-isolate at home for 7 days. You can find the full guidance at stay at home.
Ask family, friends and neighbours to support you and use online services. If this is not possible, then the public sector, business, charities, and the general public are gearing up to help those advised to stay at home. It is important to speak to others and ask them to help you to make arrangements for the delivery of food, medicines and essential services and supplies, and look after your physical and mental health and wellbeing.
If you receive support from health and social care organisations, for example, if you have care provided for you through the local authority or health care system, this will continue as normal. Your health or social care provider will be asked to take additional precautions to make sure that you are protected. The advice for formal carers is included in the Home care provision.
We advise everyone to access medical assistance remotely, wherever possible. However, if you have a scheduled hospital or other medical appointment during this period, talk to your GP or clinician to ensure you continue to receive the care you need and consider whether appointments can be postponed.
You should contact your regular social visitors such as friends and family to let them know that you are reducing social contacts and that they should not visit you during this time unless they are providing essential care for you. Essential care includes things like help with washing, dressing, or preparing meals.
If you receive regular health or social care from an organisation, either through your local authority or paid for by yourself, inform your care providers that you are reducing social contacts and agree on a plan for continuing your care.
If you receive essential care from friends or family members, speak to your carers about extra precautions they can take to keep you safe. You may find this guidance on Home care provision useful.
It is also a good idea to speak to your carers about what happens if one of them becomes unwell. If you need help with care but you’re not sure who to contact, or if you do not have family or friends who can help you, you can contact your local council who should be able to help you.
If you live in a house with a vulnerable person refer to our household guidance.
Understandably, you may find that social distancing can be boring or frustrating. You may find your mood and feelings are affected and you may feel low, worried or have problems sleeping and you might miss being outside with other people.
At times like these, it can be easy to fall into unhealthy patterns of behaviour which in turn can make you feel worse. There are simple things you can do that may help, to stay mentally and physically active during this time such as:
You can also go for a walk or exercise outdoors if you stay more than 2 metres from others.
Draw on support you might have through your friends, family and other networks during this time. Try to stay in touch with those around you over the phone, by post, or online. Let people know how you would like to stay in touch and build that into your routine. This is also important in looking after your mental wellbeing and you may find it helpful to talk to them about how you are feeling.
Remember it is OK to share your concerns with others you trust and in doing so you may end up providing support to them too. Or you can use a NHS recommended helpline.
If you are caring for someone who is vulnerable, there are some simple steps that you can take to protect them and to reduce their risk at the current time.
