Public Health England are running an Open for Business Campaign reminding everyone the NHS is still open for routine treatment and checks as there’s evidence to say that people are avoiding trips to their GP or hospital appointments.
- It is important that you or your baby or child still have routine vaccinations. They protect against serious and potentially deadly illnesses and stop outbreaks in the community.
- If the person needing vaccination has coronavirus symptoms or is self-isolating because someone in the household is displaying symptoms, please contact your GP practice for advice.
- If you are pregnant it is important that you still attend your antenatal appointments and continue to seek advice from your midwife or maternity team. www.nhs.uk/pregnancy-and-coronavirus
