Cervical Screening - Warning

NHS Cervical Screening Programme

We have received reports today of a possible scam. Some women are being contacted by text message, claiming to be from the call and recall service to advise they are overdue for screening. The message asks them to call a mobile number and provide personal details.

These messages are not from the NHS Cervical Screening Programme. Please contact the practice if you are unsure, DO NOT supply your personal information to anyone.
 

CORONAVIRUS INFORMATION

***CORONAVIRUS INFORMATION***

Everyone is being reminded to follow Public Health England advice to:

Follow the governments latest measures where possible and self-isolate if necessary.

• Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.

• Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.

• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.

• Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.

What to do if you have symptoms

Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:

- a high temperature

- a new continuous cough

if you live with other people, they should stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person got symptoms.

This will help to protect others in your community while you are infectious.

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

You do not need to contact NHS 111 to tell them you’re staying at home.

Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you’re staying at home.
