CORONAVIRUS
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

NHS prescriptions update

We have had word from the Department of Health that the cost of NHS prescriptions in England will be rising on the 1st of April 2017 to £8.60 per item (an increase of 20p). If you pay for your prescriptions please be aware of this increase that is a Government levy, not a payment to the pharmacy (the NHS takes all the £8.60s off the pharmacy at the end of each month). If you pay for prescriptions and need more than three items in a three month period, you would save money with a prepayment certificate. These cost £29.10 for three months or £104.00 for twelve months and cover all NHS prescriptions dispensed while they are valid. Prepayment certificates can be purchased over the phone or online from the NHS or we can set it up for you over the phone.

If you have medication prescribed on a private prescription, our charges are not changing and are still very competitive (and much cheaper than Boots and Lloyds!) so please get in touch for a tailored quote. Private prescriptions, like NHS ones, can be delivered to any convenient address country wide.

Finally, have you heard of NHS Repeat Dispensing? This service aims to make getting your medication even quicker and more convenient as there isn't the need to order a new prescription from the doctor every time. Instead, your GP will issue a series of "batch" prescriptions, which we will dispense at regular intervals as and when you need them. This can even be earlier than expected if you have a holiday booked, taking the hassle out of obtaining a prescription from the doctor before you travel. Contact us today to find out more about this, or any of our services.
