Coronavirus alert

Stay at home for 7 days and self-isolate if you feel hot to touch on your chest or back or if you have a new continuous cough (coughing a lot for more than one hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours). Those you live with also need to self-isolate for 14 days. This will help protect others in our community. 

DO NOT ATTEND THE GP SURGERY OR PHARMACY. Click here for NHS 111 advice including tips to avoid catching / spreading the virus. And click here for what "self-isolation" actually means. If you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home, your condition gets worse or your symptoms do not get better after 7 days then click here for the NHS 111 Online Covid-19 Service. Or call 111 if you have no online access. And here is the Isolation Note for your employer. 

Click here to be clear about what "social distancing" is - we all need to be doing this now, especially if you are over 70, have an underlying health condition or are pregnant.
