The NHS in Warwickshire and Public Health England (PHE) are extremely 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 availble to the public as normal.
Anyone who has travelled to China or places listed above in the last 14 days and develops symptoms of cough or fever or shortness of breath, should immediately:
*Stay indoors and avoid contact with other people as you would the flu
*Call NHS 111 to inform them of your recent travel to the country
Information for the public is available at gov.uk/coronavirus.
Like the common cold, coronavirus usually occurs through close contact with a person with novel coronavirus via cough and sneezes or hand contact. A person can also be infected by touching contaminated surfaces if they do not wash their hands.
Testing of suspected coronavirus cases is carried out in line with strict regulations. This means that suspected cases are kept in isolation, away from public areas of the hospital/GP practice 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.
Patients can be reassured that their safety is a top priority, and we will be triaging all appointments to help keep the spread of viruses to a minimum.
The goverment advises that anyone with a new persistent coughand/or fever should self-isolate for 7 days; do not call 111 or contact other healthcare providers.
If sysmptoms deteriorate and they feel they need medical care, they should contact NHS 111.
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.
