For patients concerned that they may have coronavirus or may have come into contact with someone who has, the NHS 111 online service has created coronavirus pages that tell patients what they should do based on their particular circumstances. These can be accessed at: https://111.nhs.uk/service/covid-19.

Fit Notes (Self Certifications)
Self Certification is a way to prove that you were ill or injured and need to take time off work to recover. Not all employers ask their employees to self-certify on their return - a fit note is usually enough to prove you were unwell.
New service for patients
The NHS has introduced a new service for people who are more at risk of an unplanned hospital admission in an emergency situation and who would benefit from more tailored, active support from their GP surgery. We believe personal care planning could help improve your health and wellbeing, as well as help to reduce the risk of unplanned hospital admissions
For more information about this service please speak to your registered Doctor.
