  • We can refer you to specialists and for other treatment if needed
  • You can access all the treatments, vaccinations and medicines you need to stay well, whether or not the care you need relates to Covid-19
  • All usual primary care continues including screening, acute care, long-term condition support, preventative services, antenatal and newborn care, and routine health needs such as mental health consults, prescription of contraception and other medication and treatment of common illnesses.

Look after your own health - how to stop the spread of infection

  • Cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze
  • Stay home if you’re sick
  • Avoid close contact with anyone with cold or flu-like symptoms
  • If you do feel unwell you should avoid public gatherings and events
