Due to the changing situation with Coronavirus we are making adjustments to try to protect both patients and staff. While Coronavirus will be mild for most we want to protect our vulnerable and elderly patients.
Stay at home if you have either:
a. A new, continuous cough
b. High temperature (of 37.8 degrees centigrade or higher)
- Anyone with these symptoms who is WELL can just stay at home and does not need to ring 111 or be tested
- Anyone with these symptoms who is UNWELL should go to 111 online for advice, they must NOT go to the GP – the 111 team will assess and advise
Individuals should stay at home (self-isolate) from the onset of symptoms for 7 days.
If you live with other people they should stay at home for 14 days from the day the first purpose got symptoms.
If someone has serious symptoms they cannot manage at home they should use NHS111 online (people should only call NHS 111 if they cannot get on-line).
