Coronavirus Statement and NMC’s Instructions - last updated on 17th March 2020.
In the light of the Corona Virus outbreak the NMC is issuing the following urgent and important advice.
At the present time, there will be no physical therapies at NMC. NMC is still open so if you would like any support or would just like to chat please call us on our advice line.
No children to come to NMC until further notice
No external visitors or professionals to enter NMC
No contractors or tradespeople UNLESS for emergency essential repairs
NMC has curtailed deliveries to site and put in place arrangements to prevent any physical contact by delivery staff with colleagues
We want to re-emphasise that, even in normal times when there is no Corona Virus outbreak, you should NOT come to the NMC with symptoms of a cold, fever, flu or cough. Many people at NMC have weakened respiratory function and have increased trouble in getting over colds / chest infection.
We are on a heightened state of vigilance currently and please telephone us if you are in any doubt about whether you should come to the Centre for treatment or any other activity.
When you are at the NMC please have the highest possible vigilance over hand washing and hand hygiene.
The NHS advice is as follows for ease of reference;
Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:
a high temperature
a new continuous cough
This will help to protect others in your community while you are infectious.
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
You do not need to contact NHS 111 to tell them you’re staying at home.
We will not be testing people who are self-isolating with mild symptoms.
Please DO NOT book a GP appointment or attend your GP practice. A link to the Government advice which is updated daily is here https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public. This link gives the very latest instructions for those returning from abroad.
Many thanks in advance for your consideration and strict compliance at this worrying time for many in our community.
If you have any doubt please STAY AWAY and phone in and speak to us.
