Stay at home to stop coronavirus spreading

ALL PATIENTS OVER 11 YEARS OF AGE MUST WEAR A FACE COVERING THAT ADEQUATELY COVERS THE NOSE AND MOUTH WHEN ATTENDING THE HEALTH CENTRE  

Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

You should only leave the house for 1 of 4 reasons:

  • shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible
  • one form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household
  • any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
  • travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home

What to do if you need medical help

If you need medical help for any reason, do not go to places like a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

If you have symptoms of coronavirus (a high temperature or a new, continuous cough), use the 111 coronavirus service.

If you need help or advice not related to coronavirus:

  • for health information and advice, use the NHS website or your GP surgery website
  • for urgent medical help, use the NHS 111 online service – only call 111 if you're unable to get help online
  • for life-threatening emergencies, call 999 for an ambulance

Antibody testing is being rolled out in Suffolk and North East Essex in a safe and phased way. It has begun within our hospitals.  We will keep you updated as to when this test is available to wider staff and patient groups.  Meanwhile, please may we request that you do not ask your GP about availability.  Please also note that as this is a new disease we don’t yet know if having antibodies means you are immune.
