Latest Advice
Symptoms
The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of:
  • New continuous cough and/or
  • High temperature
  • loss or change to your sense of smell or taste  

For most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness If you have coronavirus symptoms:
  • Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital
  • You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home
  • Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you're staying at home
  • Plan ahead and ask others for help to ensure that you can successfully stay at home and consider what can be done for vulnerable people in the household
  • Ask your employer, friends and family to help you to get the things you need to stay at home
  • Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, each time using soap and water, or use hand sanitiser
  • If you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home, or your condition gets worse, or your symptoms do not get better after 7 days, then use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service. If you do not have internet access, call NHS 111. For a medical emergency dial 999

Stay at Home
  • If you live alone and you have symptoms of coronavirus illness (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started. (See ending isolation section below for more information)
  • If you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill
  • It is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community
  • For anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14 day isolation period. (See ending isolation section below for more information
  • If you can, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period
  • If you cannot move vulnerable people out of your home, stay away from them as much as possible

National Bug Busting Day will take place 31 January 2015 We see thefrustrationand in some cases down right despair of family members who are trying to rid their family and themselves of these little parasites. I have seen people driven to tears in not being able to rid their household successfully of head lice or their eggs. Worst of all is when a child is finally clear of "lice" and then catch them back through a close contact with someone who is still carrying head lice. We in local pharmacy settings stand ready to support and advise parents , grandparents and children what can be done to help eradicate this horrible scourge. There are numerous treatment options depending on age and whether someone hassensitivityto a particular ingredient. We can help guide you to the most helpful treatment in each case. "Head lice have been with us since at least Egyptian times so we are going to have to try harder and act smarter if we want to eradicate them," says Sanjay Doegar, a pharmacist in Ruislip, Middlesex. National Bug Busting Day will take place 31 January 2015, the intention being to raise awareness about head lice and to stop the spread all together.Schools across the UK take part in 'Bug Busting Day' in a bid to prevent head lice circulating endlessly and we can help.Head lice is a very important concern in pharmacy, parents can come to us for both treatment and for advice and support too. There are many myths around head lice that can cause embarrassment to some customers . See our 'Head Lice Facts' below to make sure you are in the know. Head Lice Facts It is estimated that up to half a million children catch head lice each year.Head lice are small insects that can vary in size and colour.They cannot jump, hop or fly and are passed on by head to head contact.Head lice are unlikely to be passed on through towels, combs and chair backs.Head lice are not fussy and will set up home in a warm head of hair be it clean or dirty.The majority of their time is spent on or near the scalp as they feed on it by suckling blood.The female louse can lay up to eight eggs every night, gluing them to the base of an individual hair.Young louse are called nymphs.The egg shells which are left after hatching are known as nits.The nymphs will be mature and be capable of breeding within 10 days.
