What we have to say about your health and well being

Keep Well This Winter
Though it may seem a bit early to be thinking about Christmas, this will be the last issue before the festive season. You may also need to plan a little more carefully this year with regards to your health. With Christmas Day falling on Friday and Monday qualifying as a Bank Holiday, doctor's surgeries and most pharmacies will be closed for four consecutive days. To aggravate the situation, it is predicted to be the coldest winter for 50 years with heavy snowfall likely. This may make getting out to the surgery more difficult too. The weather may also impact on deliveries of medicines. To avoid being left without your medicines over this period ensure you order them sufficiently early. Even if you do not take prescription medicines, you may still need to plan ahead. It would be wise to stock up on cough and cold remedies rather than being caught short. Vitamins to boost your immune system can also be useful during such cold periods. Of course, past experience teaches us that it would be wise to stock up on indigestion and over-indulgence remedies even if you have the best of intentions (those best intentions do often seem to fade don't they?) Pop in to see us and I will be happy to advise on the best options. Not only do we have certain stronger medicines which can only be bought from pharmacies, we will also ensure the treatment we recommend suits you and takes into account any other medicines you may take. We will refer you if you need further medical attention. You can see our pharmacist for advice without an appointment. Practical tips to keep well in winter include ensuring your house is kept warm. It is also important to eat well as food gives you energy, which helps to keep you warm. So, try to have regular hot meals and drinks throughout the day. If you are in an at-risk group, you should ensure you have a flu jab. If you do need medical help or advice when your surgery and pharmacy are closed phone 111. An adviser will ask you questions to assess your symptoms and then give you the advice you need, or direct you to the best service for you in your area. I hope you find this useful, and would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a happy new year. Eat, drink and enjoy the season with your loved ones. Taj

  • 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

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
