Notice

Like seasonal flu, the same public health advice applies for COVID-19: if you cough or sneeze, use a tissue to cover your mouth and nose, throw it away carefully after use, and wash your hands. 

The best way to prevent the spread of infections, including COVID-19, is good personal hygiene. This means washing your hands well and often, using soap and water and drying them with paper towels.

You should NOT attend the Centre If you have any of the following symptoms:

 

  • A high temperature
  • A new continuous cough
  • a loss of or change in sense of smell or taste

 

You should stay at home and contact NHS 111 for further advice.
