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

Pharmacy Weight Loss Blog (1)

After the Christmas & New Year festivities, our pharmacist has taken stock of his weight - and isn't happy! Currently he is 88kg - 13 stone 12 pounds - this equates to a BMI of 28, which is classed as over weight. Add to this a depressing waist size of 42 inch and the time has come to do something about the problem! Andrew has decided to use the Lipotrim program that we run at Wyvern Pharmacy. This is complete meal replacement - the male version is two milkshakes a day with nothing else except water and black tea or coffee. Over the course of the next few weeks, Andrew will be updating this blog with any thoughts on the Lipotrim diet, in order to help anyone thinking about going for it this year! So over to Andrew....

The one good thing - I already drink black coffee, so at least I'm not giving that up! I will miss chocolate, chinese take aways, pizza and booze, but they are what got me to this weight in the first place! I've picked Sunday as my starting day for the Lipotrim diet - it is important to be mentally ready for such a big change to lifestyle and focussing on a specific start date is a good way to prepare. I know this diet will take a lot of will power (something I'm not great at when it comes to food) but I'm hoping to lose between a stone and a stone & a half in the first month, which would put me more or less where I should be according to my height and will also reset my relationship with snacks and drink, allowing me to retake control instead of overloading my plates. If I can get rid of my belly, I'll be happy! So keep tuned, I'll update this blog with my progress as the weight comes off!
