The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of patients and staff which may mean your patient experience is subject to change.
The Chief Medical Officer announced on Friday 13 March that the country is moving into the ‘Delay’ stage of the response to coronavirus (Covid-19).
The new advice issued by the Chief Medical Officer is to stay at home for 7 days if you have either:
- a high temperature or
- a new continuous cough
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or a hospital. You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home.
Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:
- you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home • your condition gets worse • your symptoms do not get better after 7 days
Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.
Stay At Home advice can be found here. https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/self-isolation-advice/ Please use the online 111 service link if you need an isolation note for your employer https://111.nhs.uk/isolation-note/
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.

Med 3 for patients
Practices are being inundated with requests for Med 3 certificates from patients that are self-isolating due to Covid 19. We have been advised that patients that phone NHS 111 will be given a Unique Reference Number (URN) and this will be accepted by the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP).
