PLEASE DO NOT VISIT THE GP SURGERY
IF YOU HAVE ANY SYMPTOMS OF COUGH OR FEVER
Please seek information and guidance by visiting NHS 111 online
Calling NHS 111 should only happen should you not be able to use the online advice
The NHS and Public Health England (PHE) are extremely 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.
You will need to self-isolate if you have any of the following:
- you have a new continuous cough – this means you’ve started coughing repeatedly
- you have a high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
- you've been in close contact with someone with a confirmed diagnosis of coronavirus
NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need medical help and advise you what to do.
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Stay indoors and avoid close contact with other people. Call 111 if you need to speak to someone.
Further information and details of how to self-isolate are available on nhs.uk.
