***IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE CORONAVIRIS (COVID-19)***
The NHS in Cheshire and Public Health England (PHE) are well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to protect patients, our community and NHS staff while ensuring as many services as possible are available to the public.
If you have symptoms associated with coronavirus including a new continuous cough and a high temperature, you are advised to stay at home for 10 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 10 days, to avoid spreading the infection outside the home. After 10 days, anyone you live with who does not have symptoms can return to their normal routine.
But, if anyone in your home gets symptoms, they should stay at home for 10 days from the day their symptoms start. Even if it means they’re at home for longer than 10 days. The most up-to-date public guidance is always online at www.nhs.uk/coronavirus
If your symptoms are serious, or get worse, NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need further medical help and advise you what to do.
Only call 111 direct if you are advised to do so by the online service or you cannot go online.
YOU NEED TO CONTACT NHS 111 IF YOU REQUIRE URGENT CARE WHEN THE PRACTICE IS CLOSED. YOU SIMPLY DIAL THE NON-EMERGENCY LINE 111.
