We have provided information on the symptoms of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and what you should do if you have symptoms.
If any of our carers have symptoms of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) we are advising them to self-isolate and get in touch with their local GP, this will prevent the further spread of the virus to any of our carers and service users, there is also the NHS helpine that can be used for further advice, the number you need to dial is 111.
We have issued advice on washing hands to all our carers working out in the field, including all our office staff co-ordinating from our head office.
