Stay Safe this New Year

31 Dec 2020

London remains in Tier 4 over New Year

Full story

London is in Tier4 of the Covid-19 restrictions which means that despite it being New Years Eve and traditionally a time when would normally go out to celebrate,  it is important this year to stay at home where possible. 
 
If you need urgent care, our emergency department and maternity services remain open throughout New Year as normal.
 
Around 1 in 3 people will have no symptoms with the new strain of coronavirus. Please follow this simple guidance to stay safe tonight.
 
  • do not mix indoors with households who are not in your support bubble.
  • allow fresh air in when you are indoors
  • only leave home for food, medical reasons, exercise or work
  • do not travel unless absolutely necessary 

Treating minor conditions this New Year
For minor conditions, you can seek advice and get the medicines you may need from  your local pharmacy. Give them a call for advice, or pop in. If you’re ordering medication, allow them time to process your prescription.
 
If you need urgent dental care over the bank holiday weekend, contact your dentist or use the NHS 111 online service

Stay well this winter
For anyone with a long-term health condition, it's important to protect yourself from the cold this winter.

  • heat your home to at least 18 degrees, if you can
  • get your free flu vaccine
  • get healthcare advice if you're feeling unwell

Thank you from everyone at Whittington Health for using all of our services and the NHS responsibly during this challenging time.
 
Wishing all of our colleagues and community a very Happy New Year!
