Important information about the coronavirus (COVID-19)

The NHS and Public Health England (PHE) are 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.


The latest information on symptoms of Coronovirus infection and areas where recent travel may have resulted in a high risk of exposure can be found on


NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need medical help and advise you what to do.


Use this service if:

  • you think you might have coronavirus;
  • in the last 14 days you've been to a country or area with a high risk of coronavirus;
    • you've been in close contact with someone with coronavirus.Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Call 111 if you need to speak to someone.Like the common cold, coronavirus infection usually occurs through close contact with a person with novel coronavirus via cough and sneezes or hand contact. A person can also catch the virus by touching contaminated surfaces if they do not wash their hands. Testing of suspected coronavirus cases is carried out in line with strict guidelines. This means that suspected cases are kept in isolation, away from public areas of GP surgeries, pharmacies and hospitals and returned home also in isolation. Any equipment that come into contact with suspected cases are thoroughly cleaned as appropriate. Specific guidance has also been shared with NHS staff to help safeguard them and others
    • 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.

Do not visit the surgery unless you have telephoned the surgery and advised to do so by your GP.

Changes to prescribing and other services

To protect essential services in our area we have to make savings of £55 million and we must look at further reducing spending now. Local clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) recently held an eight week public consultation talking about some of the things we thought we could save money on.


A full breakdown of the proposals and what was approved is attached and is also now available on our websites:
