Important information about the coronavirus (COVID-19)

The NHS and Public Health England (PHE) are well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal.

The latest information on symptoms of Coronovirus infection and areas where recent travel may have resulted in a high risk of exposure can be found on nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need medical help and advise you what to do.

Use this service if:


Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Call 111 if you need to speak to someone.

Like the common cold, coronavirus infection usually occurs through close contact with a person with novel coronavirus via cough and sneezes or hand contact. A person can also catch the virus by touching contaminated surfaces if they do not wash their hands.

Testing of suspected coronavirus cases is carried out in line with strict guidelines. This means that suspected cases are kept in isolation, away from public areas of GP surgeries, pharmacies and hospitals and returned home also in isolation. Any equipment that come into contact with suspected cases are thoroughly cleaned as appropriate. Specific guidance has also been shared with NHS staff to help safeguard them and others. Patients can be reassured that their safety is a top priority, and are encouraged to attend all appointments as usual.

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

News

  • The NHS is still here for you

    Your NHS is still here for you. We know that some people are worried that they might be a burden to the NHS, or that they could contract COVID-19 if they seek help for an urgent medical issue at the moment. GPs in your area want to reassure you that this isn’t the case and your NHS is here for you.

    If you need urgent medical help visit your GP practice website, use an NHS app to contact your practice, or contact them by phone. Most appointments with a GP, nurse or other healthcare professional will now be via a phone call, and if you are told you need to see a clinician in person, the NHS has put measures in place to make sure patients are seen safely.

    GP practices and hospitals have strict infection prevention and control measures in place, so it is safe to attend appointments. It is important that you continue attend routine appointments, such as antenatal checks, cancer screenings, and take your children for childhood vaccinations, as normal, unless you have been told not to attend.

    If you need urgent medical help, and are not able to contact your practice visit NHS 111 online. If you cannot get help online, call 111. If it’s a serious or life-threatening emergency, call 999.

    Advice regarding Coronavirus remains the same. Anyone who has symptoms of this illness (a new continuous cough, or a high temperature, or a loss of smell or taste) must stay at home for at least seven days. Anyone you live with should not leave your home for 14 days. You can use the NHS 111 COVID-19 online service to check your symptoms and get more advice. You should not go to a GP practice, pharmacy or hospital. This is to help limit the spread of the virus.
