Coronavirus (COVID-19)

If you are worried or concerned about coronavirus DO NOT go to any CHoC centre, pharmacy, hospital or GP surgery. Call 111 if you need to speak to someone.

NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need medical help and advise you what to do.

Use this service if:

  • you think you might have coronavirus
  • in the last 14 days you’ve been to a country or area with a high risk of coronavirus – see coronavirus advice for travellers
  • you’ve been in close contact with someone with coronavirus

To view up to date information on coronavirus (COVID-19) visit the following sites:

  • NHS 111 – for health information and advice
  • GOV.UK – for information on the Government’s response to coronavirus
