Information for vulnerable patients
We are getting a large number of calls from patients with coughs or a temperature who think they may have coronavirus. Please follow online advice using this link. If you have symptoms and are coping you are supposed to self-isolate for 7 days. If you feel that you can't cope with your symptoms you are advised to call 111, not your GP. Please follow the online guidance and call us only if you are unsure as to what to do.
Local support can also be accessed from Bexley Council by visiting this link or by phoning the Bexley Coronavirus helpline on 0203 045 5398 which is open 8am to 6pm. Contact them if you need someone to get shopping, pick up other essentials, or to give you information, guidance and advice.
The 111 website has now got the facility (111.nhs.uk/isolation-note) for patients to apply for isolation notes to give to employers. This is for: 1. those who have symptoms and have used the 111 online service, or 2. have been told by a healthcare professional that they have symptoms, or 3. live with someone who has coronavirus.
