Corona Virus (COVID-19)

Posted on March 4th, 2020

You may well be aware of current developing situation regarding corona virus (COVID-19). The government, NHS and Public Health England are working hard to ensure that all patients and staff are protected while ensuring the continuation of services. The current approach is to identify potential cases of COVID-19, isolate them and reduce the potential spread of the virus. This model is devised to protect primary care, the ambulance service and our emergency departments so they can operate as usual and assist the sickest patients.

Everyone is being reminded to follow Public Health England advice to:

 

• Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.

• Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.

• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.

• Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.

 

Please also note that to help ensure patient safety we are suspending online appointment booking as a temporary measure, in line with local advice. Our eConsult service is still operational and one of the best ways to contact a clinician.
