Frome case negative

Yesterday we reported that an unconfirmed case of possible coronavirus was identified at Frome Medical Centre.

This morning Helen Kingston, senior partner of Frome Medical Practice told The Leveller “I am pleased to report that  screening of the suspected case has been confirmed as negative and we are all back to normal.

Yesterday part of the building was  closed on advice of Public Health England as a precautionary measure whilst these tests were processed.

Dr Kingston added “The team here did a great job keeping the practice open and ensuring patients were cared for safely through the time of uncertainty.”

General advice to the public remains as before. Everyone should remain alert and follow national advice to contact NHS 111 if they have travelled to areas of concern. If you have concerns about coronavirus, Frome Medical Centre has a full suite of advice on their website
