Two GP surgeries in North Herefordshire have re-opened after six people tested positive for coronavirus.

The Marches GP Surgery in Leominster and the branch surgery at Bodenham have now re-opened.

A statement released on Monday by Herefordshire Council said: "Following testing of all staff, one further person was found to be positive for covid-19 bringing the total number of cases to six. 43 members of staff have tested negative.

Staff affected are currently self-isolating and contacts have been notified. The cases were focused in a non-clinical area and no patients have been identified as having contact with the staff affected."

The practice remains open for phone and video consultations, prescription requests and other queries. Face to face appointments with GPs are arranged when required after a phone consultation. Nursing and health care assistant appointments are operating normally again.
