Coronavirus – NHS Information & Advice

The NHS website has a wealth of advice on how to stay well and what to do if you become ill.

Advice for protecting the vulnerable

This Public Health England document provides a summary of the main guidance produced to help vulnerable individuals, groups and communities to protect themselves and others from COVID-19, and to manage the impact of shielding and social distancing.


Getting help from an NHS Volunteer Responder – If you are currently not supported and need some help with shopping, a prescription collection or a friendly chat then the NHS Volunteer Responders are ready to help.

What to do if you need medical help

If you need medical help for any reason, do not go to places like a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. If you have symptoms of coronavirus (a high temperature or a new, continuous cough), use the 111 coronavirus service.

If you need help or advice not related to coronavirus: for health information and advice, use the NHS website or your GP surgery website; for urgent medical help, use the NHS 111 online service – only call 111 if you’re unable to get help online; for life-threatening emergencies, call 999 for an ambulance. Read more advice about getting medical help at home.
