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.

How will additional information help me?

Essential details about your healthcare can be very difficult to remember, particularly if you are unwell. Having additional information in your SCR means that when you need healthcare, you will be helped to recall this vital information. This can further increase the quality of your care and empower you if you need some help to communicate your complex care needs.

Please speak to reception should you wish to consent / activate your Enhanced Summary Care Record.
