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

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

Blood in pee
Blood in pee
Blood in Pee ?
The NHS and Cancer Research UK are running a “Blood in Pee” campaign.
Why?
- Well, blood in your pee can be an early sign of a problem and it would be silly to ignore something so obvious.
If I see blood in my pee what should I do?
To quote Private Jones. “don’t panic”. There are lots of causes of red colour in the urine and not all of them are serious. Food colouring, beetroot , a heavy period are just some. The most common cause, by a long way, is a simple urinary tract infection. The list is quite long but unfortunately cancer is on it too.
Once you have decided that it is not due to something really obvious you should seek help. Contact your GP and arrange an appointment. Depending on your symptoms, this can usually be a routine one. Take with you a fresh urine specimen in a clean container, as it will save time.
Your GP will probably send some of the sample away and test the rest with a dip-stick that can check for blood. Your GP might treat a suspected infection or arrange further tests depending on your story and the result of any examination.
The important thing is that if you have blood in your urine a reason needs to be found. Its cause might be simple and easily treated but it might be an early sign of more serious disease, including some cancers. All cancers can be treated more easily the earlier they are found.
Don’t ignore “Blood in Pee”.
