Staff Advice - Coronavirus COVID-19

Check if you need medical help

NHS 111 has an online and telephone coronavirus service that can tell you if you need medical help and advise you what to do.

Use this service if:

  • you think you might have coronavirus (a cough, a high temperature, shortness of breath)
  • in the last 14 days you've been to a country or area with a high risk of coronavirus – see our coronavirus advice for travellers
  • you've been in close contact with someone with coronavirus

Stay at home whilst you await advice from NHS 111 and let your line manager know.

If there's a chance you could have coronavirus, you may be asked to stay away from other people (self-isolate). Information on self-isolation can be found here:

Severe Weather

Staff will be expected to take reasonable steps to come into work. Any member of staff who does not feel they are able to get in to work should contact and make arrangements with their line manager to either work from home, book the day as annual leave, or make up the time.
