COVID-19 Social Distancing

Apr 14, 2020
If you fall into the category of adults eligible for the annual flu vaccines for medical reasons, eg diabetes, heart disease, stroke, you will not be proactively contacted by the practice but it is recommended that you take active steps to reduce your social interactions to reduce the transition of coronavirus.

You should only leave the house for very limited purposes:

  • shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible.
  • one form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle - alone or with members of your household.
  • any medical need, including to donate blood, avoid or escape risk of injury or harm, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person.
  • travelling for work purposes, but only where you cannot work from home.

Even when doing these activities, you should be minimising time spent outside of the home and ensuring you are 2 metres apart from anyone outside of your household.

Should you feel you require further advice or help, please telephone 0800 111 4000.
