Norovirus - Update

Cases of sickness and diarrhoea (norovirus) are risiing and impacting local hospitals.

  • If you or your family have symptoms, please do not visit a healthcare setting
  • Get better at home with simple self-care
  • Stay off school or work until you have not been sick or had diarrhoea for at least 2 days. This is when you are most infectious 

Self-care tips:

  • stay at home and get plenty of rest
  • drink lots of fluids
  • take paracetamol if you're in discomfort
  • wash your hands with soap and water often (hand gel is not effective against norovirus)

Unfortunately, we have a high level of short notice, clinical staff sickness today. Therefore, we only have capacity to see patients with urgent medical problems today. Don't forget, you can ask a pharmacist for advice and treatment for minor illness such as coughs, colds, sore throats, eye infections, urine infections and earaches.
Thank you for your support.
