The NHS across York will be better prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases, if the public follows Public Health England advice.

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:

single pixel  a high temperature or

single pixel  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:

single pixel  you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home

single pixel  your condition gets worse

single pixel  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.

Everyone is being reminded to follow Public Health England advice to:

single pixel  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.

single pixel  Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.

single pixel  Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.

single pixel  Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.

Information remains subject to regular change and updates. More information can be found on the NHS website here.
