Important Document - Coronavirus Medical Advice

If you have symptoms associated with coronavirus including a new continuous cough and a high temperature, you are advised to stay at home for 7 days.

PLEASE DO NOT BOOK A GP APPOINTMENT OR ATTEND YOUR GP PRACTICE

If you live with other people, they should stay at home for at least 14 days, to avoid spreading the infection outside the home. After 14 days, anyone you live with who does not have any symptoms can return to their normal routine.

But, if anyone in the home gets symptoms, they should stay at home for 7 days from the day their symptoms start.

If your symptoms are serious or get worse, NHS111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need further medical help and advise you what to do.

Only call NHS111 direct if you are advised to do so by the  online service or you cannot go online.
