To help support our staff, please do not visit our hospitals, clinics or community facilities if you feel unwell, especially if you have a high temperature or a new, continuous cough.
We know that this is a worrying time for our local communities and we want to reassure members of the public that the health and safety of our patients, visitors and staff is our absolute priority. We have robust plans and procedures to reduce the risk of infection and transmission.
Government advice is to stay at home if you have either:
- a high temperature
- a new, continuous cough
NHS 111 has an online Covid-19 service that can tell you if you need medical help and advice on what to do. You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you’re staying at home. Use the NHS 111 online Covid-19 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.
