NHS England and Improvement updated guidance to practices on 18 February 2020.

This includes:

  • Advice to the public, including posters, what to add to your website/phone system and template communications in the event a practice needs to be closed for decontamination.
  • Actions practices need to take if a suspected case of Covid-19 is identified, including if the person attends the practice.
  • The responsibilities of NHS 111 and the process it should be following.
  • What clinicians should do if they come into contact with someone who may have Covid-19.

We will continue to pass on relevant communications to practices as the official response to Covid-19 develops.
