Coronavirus (COVID-19) information for patients




Kingston Private Health and the NHS is well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases, and measures have been put in place to ensure the safety of the public and patients whilst NHS staff ensure services continue to be available.

If you have symptoms associated with coronavirus, including a new continuous cough and a high temperature, you are advised to stay at home for 7 days. Please do not book a GP appointment or attend your GP practice.

If you live with other people, they should stay at home for at least 14 days to avoid spreading the infection outside the home. After 14 days, anyone you live with who does not have symptoms can return to their normal routine. But if anyone in your home gets symptoms, they should stay at home for 7 days from the day their symptoms start – even if it means they are at home for longer than 14 days.

The most up-to-date public guidance is always online at www.nhs.uk/coronavirus

If your symptoms are serious or get worse, NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need further medical help, and advise you what to do.

Only call 111 direct if you are advised to do so by the online service or you can go online.

Please note, we are unable to offer testing for Covid-19.
