The NHS and other health and care organisations in Sussex have teamed up to keep things simple. We’ve set out the straightforward steps that you can take to keep yourself and other safe and reduce your risk of serious illness from COVID-19.
Please help spread the message, not the virus.
Take common-sense steps to reduce the risk of catching or spreading coronavirus. You can spread the virus even if you do not have symptoms.
Think Hands, Face, Space – washing your hands regularly, using a face mask in areas where social distancing is difficult, and keeping 2 metres’ space between you and others will all help to reduce the spread of the virus.
If you are experiencing coronavirus symptoms, please use the government portal to book a test. It is important that you and anyone you live with continue to self-isolate until you get a test result.
You can find more information, support and guidance on testing If you have a continuous cough or fever, self-isolate and contact NHS111 if you need further advice or help.
Our NHS services in Sussex are currently very busy. However, we are working very hard to keep them running and here for you.
The NHS is open and here for you. For now, please continue to attend appointments as advised. You don’t need to call to check that a booked appointment is going ahead. You will be contacted directly if anything changes with your care.
