Stay alert, control the virus, save lives


Anyone attending surgery is now required to provide and wear their own face covering. Face coverings are widely available online, but you probably already have something suitable in your own home. You can use a scarf, bandana or any piece of material, provided it covers your nose & mouth.

More information on face coverings can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/face-coverings-when-to-wear-one-and-how-to-make-your-own

Important Information about the coronavirus (COVID-19)

As per Public Health England advice, the NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of patients and staff which may mean your patient experience is subject to change.

The Chief Medical Officer announced on Friday 13 March that the country is moving into the ‘Delay’ stage of the response to coronavirus (Covid-19).

The new advice issued by the Chief Medical Officer is to stay at home for 7 days if you have either:

• a high temperature or

• a new continuous cough

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or a hospital. You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home.

Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:

• you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home

• your condition gets worse

• your symptoms do not get better after 7 days

Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.

Stay At Home advice can be found here.

Everyone is being reminded to follow Public Health England advice to:

• Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.

• Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.

• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.

• Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.

IMPORTANT:  Information remains subject to regular change and updates. More information can be found on the NHS website here.
