cORONAVIRUS !!!!

Coronavirus presents with flu like symptoms including a fever, a cough or difficulty breathing. 

The virus is confirmed by taking samples/swabs from the patient’s nose and throat and possibly samples from the respiratory system.

 

The majority of cases have experienced mild symptoms and those who have died in Wuhan appear to have had underlying health conditions.

 

If you have travelled from Wuhan or Hubei Province to the UK in the last 14 days:

You should immediately stay indoors and avoid contact with other people.  Call NHS 111 and inform them of your recent travel to this area. They will advise you of the next steps

 

If you have travelled from the following areas:

Mainland China

Thailand

Japan

Republic of Korea

Hong Kong

Taiwan

Singapore

Malaysia

Macau

And you develop symptoms of cough, fever or shortness of breath you should stay indoors, avoid contact with other people and call NHS 111 to inform them of your recent travel to the country and your symptoms.

 

We are asking patients to take simple common sense steps to limit the spread of the virus – as you would with any other flu like virus, this includes:

Staying at home and not going to work, school or public areas

Avoid travelling on public transport

NHS 111 will advise you of the next steps.

 

These steps are highly precautionary and are aimed at limiting the potential spread of infection.  The majority of patients who have had the virus have made a good recovery.   

 

Please do not attend your GP Practice, as stated if you fit the above criteria please call NHS 111 for further advice.

Our services can be accessed via the Police - if you report the assault to the Police our services may be offered to you as part of their response. We can also take direct self-referrals from an individual, friend, family member or professional. If you do not wish to report to the Police, support can be gained from other agencies -  a list of these agencies can be found here or you can self refer to The Glade.

If you have a forensic medical examination, The Glade can securely store any evidence gained allowing you time to think and if you want to involve the police at a later date The Glade staff can assist with this.

Our services are free and confidential however there may be occasions when other agencies need to be informed e.g. if a child or you are at risk of harm or in need of emergency medical assistance.

The Glade has two sites, one located in Worcestershire and the other in Telford. You have the choice to access either of these sites if you live in the West Mercia area; Worcestershire, Herefordshire, Telford and Wrekin and Shropshire. Full address details will be given via the telephone.
