Latest Advice
Symptoms
The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of:
  • New continuous cough and/or
  • High temperature
  • loss or change to your sense of smell or taste  

For most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness If you have coronavirus symptoms:
  • 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
  • Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you're staying at home
  • Plan ahead and ask others for help to ensure that you can successfully stay at home and consider what can be done for vulnerable people in the household
  • Ask your employer, friends and family to help you to get the things you need to stay at home
  • Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, each time using soap and water, or use hand sanitiser
  • If you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home, or your condition gets worse, or your symptoms do not get better after 7 days, then use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service. If you do not have internet access, call NHS 111. For a medical emergency dial 999
  • Visit NHS 111 Online for more information

Stay at Home
  • If you live alone and you have symptoms of coronavirus illness (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started. (See ending isolation section below for more information)
  • If you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill
  • It is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community
  • For anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14 day isolation period. (See ending isolation section below for more information
  • If you can, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period
  • If you cannot move vulnerable people out of your home, stay away from them as much as possible

New Flu Jab service!
The flu vaccine's the best available protection against the flu virus. It’s very safe, only takes a few minutes and will last around a year.

Flu's much more than a bad cold and can make people very unwell. It's highly infectious with symptoms that come on quickly and can hit anyone. In the most serious cases, flu can bring on pneumonia, or other serious infections which can, in extreme cases, result in death.

Who should get the flu vaccine?

Any strain of flu can be dangerous for people who are vulnerable to it. That's why the following groups of people are able to get the free flu vaccine via thei GP practice as soon as it's available every winter to help protect against flu:

  • People with a health condition
  • People aged 65 years or over
  • Pregnant women
  • People that work in healthcare
  • Unpaid carers and young carers

For information on the child flu vaccine, please visit thechild flu page

What if I'm not in one of the eligible groups?

While you may not be eligivle for a free NHS vaccine, many people choose to be vaccinated anyway for example, to reduce the risk to vulnerable people they may come into contact with or avoid having to time off work.

If you're 18 years old, or over, and not in one of the eligible groups for the free flu immunisation, you can get the vaccine from the pharmacist at Dysart Pharmacy this year for a small fee of £10.99. Our service is a walk-in service available 9am-6pm Monday to Friday, no appointment is necessary but you can phone ahead if you would like to book a specific time.

Pop in or call us on 01592 652 910 for more information!
