Coronavirus – Latest information as of 10th March 2020

Posted on January 31st, 2020

The NHS in Cambridge and Peterborough, Public Health England (PHE) are extremely well prepared for

outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to ensure
the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to
the public as normal.

The risk to the general public is moderate.

Category 1: Travellers should self-isolate, even if asymptomatic, and use the 111 online coronavirus service to find out what to do next. Go home or to your destination and then self isolate.

The guidance for Italy applies to travellers who returned from the country on or after 9 March 2020.

Category 2: Travellers do not need to undertake any special measures, but if they develop symptoms they should self-isolate and call NHS 111.

indoors and avoid close contact with other people.

Like the common cold, coronavirus infection usually occurs through close contact
with a person with novel coronavirus via cough and sneezes or hand contact. A
person can also be infected by touching contaminated surfaces if they do not wash
their hands.

The risk of being in close contact with a person with coronavirus or contaminated
surfaces is very low at the current time, as members of the public who have visited
Wuhan or Hubei province, China are currently in isolation.

Testing of suspected coronavirus cases is carried out in line with strict regulations.
This means that suspected cases are kept in isolation, away from public areas of the
hospital and returned home also in isolation. Any equipment that come into contact
with suspected cases are thoroughly cleaned as appropriate. Specific guidance has
also been shared with NHS staff to help safeguard them and others. Patients can be
reassured that their safety is a top priority, and are encouraged to attend all
appointments as usual.

Everyone is being reminded to follow Public Health England advice to:
• Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze.
Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.
• Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public
transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.

Friends & Family Test

  • The Friends and Family Test (FFT) is an important feedback tool that supports the fundamental principle that people who use NHS services should have the opportunity to provide feedback on their experience. Listening to the views of patients and staff helps identify what is working well, what can be improved and how.

    The FFT asks people if they would recommend the services they have used and offers a range of responses.
