Noticeboard

If you are in touch with friends, family or a support network in your community who can support you to get food and medicine, follow the advice in this letter.
If you do not have contacts who can help support you go to

If, at any point, you think you have developed symptoms of coronavirus, such as a new, continuous cough and/or high temperature (above 37.8 °C), seek clinical advice using the NHS 111 online coronavirus service (https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19/). If you do not have access to the internet, call NHS 111.

Coronavirus
Please do not book an appointment to attend your GP Practice using the online service if you've been to mainland China and have symptoms of cough or fever or shortness of breath within 2 weeks of returning, or if you have symptoms of cough or fever or shortness of breath after being in contact with someone with a confirmed case of Coronavirus. Please call 111 instead.

You can read more about Coronavirus on NHS.UK.

Why no antibiotics?

Taking antibiotics for the wrong reason, such as against colds or flu, has no benefit for you. This is because:
• you probably have a viral infection
• Antibiotics don't work against colds or flu
• Your infection should start to clear up in a few days


If you have a cold, or flu-like symptoms, then you should:
• Drink plenty of fluids
• Get some rest
• Take paracetamol
