Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms

Stay at home if you have either:

  • a high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
  • a new, continuous cough – this means you've started coughing repeatedly

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.

Read the NHS advice about staying home, including how long to isolate for.

Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:

  • you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
  • your condition gets worse
  • your symptoms do not get better after 7 days

Use the 111 coronavirus service

Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.

The provision of medical services to our local professional drivers is sometimes poor, expensive and inefficient.

We have a local GP performing HGV and LGV medical examinations for vans, trucks, horse boxes, etc. and PCV medicals for buses, minibuses and coaches as well as Private hire and Hackney Carriage (Taxi) medicals for local authorities. (Please note that some local authorities require a taxi medical from your own GP and it is the drivers responsibility to check).

 Are you a driver or do your drivers need licence medicals?

 Where do they go currently? Is it expensive?

 We offer licence medicals for only £60 per person.
