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.
