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.

 

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.

 

Ear, Nose and Throat

The community ENT service for the NHS was started by Dr Unwin 17 years ago and now has grown into a team of several doctors and support staff.  The service accepts GP referrals from the West Kent CCG, Dartford and Gravesham CCG, Medway CCG and Swale CCG.  The doctors will see all ear, nose and throat conditions with the exception of children under 2 years and patients with a suspected cancer diagnosis. 

The service also works in close collaboration with the Head and Neck departments of both Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS trust and Medway NHS Foundation trust to reduce their outpatient waiting times. There is an allied aural care (ear microsuction) clinic, for all CCG patients and a service for dispensing new hearing aids for West Kent patients.  The service works closely with HI Kent, which run clinics from several sites including the Borough Green Medical Practice, Rochester Healthy Living Centre and Sittingbourne Memorial Hospital. 

The service has been well received by both local doctors and patients alike, for many years now.

For ENT queries, please contact us on 01732 887210.  The telephone line is open from 10am - 3:30pm Monday to Friday or email us on wkccg.ent@nhs.net.
