​Important information about the coronavirus (COVID-19) - 13 March 2020

The NHS in Lambeth 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 Chief Medical Officer has announced that the country is moving into the 'Delay' stage of the response to coronavirus from Friday, 13th March 2020.

The new advice issued by the Chief Medical Officer is as follows:

Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:

•           a high temperature

•           a new continuous cough

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or 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.

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.
