The NHS in Bradford district and Craven and Public Health England (PHE) are well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases.

The latest information about coronavirus is available on the NHS website at www.nhs.uk/coronavirus (opens in a new window).

What to do if you have symptoms of coronavirus

If you have symptoms of coronavirus (a high temperature, a new, continuous cough and/or a loss or change to your sense of taste and/or smell), you should isolate at home immediately and use the 111 online coronavirus service (opens in a new window). Only call NHS 111 if you cannot get help online.

You should isolate immediately at home for 10 days. All other members of your household should isolate for 14 days.

If you have symptoms of coronavirus, you can have a test (swab test) to check if you have the virus. You can choose to take the test at a test site near you or with a home test kit. You can find out more about how to get a free NHS test to check if you have coronavirus on the NHS UK website (opens in a new window). If you do not have access to the internet, you can also call 119 for assistance.

If you are contacted by the NHS Test and Trace service, please follow the advice provided.

You can find the latest information and up-to-date guidance about coronavirus on the nhs.uk website (opens in a new window).

What to do if you need medical help

If you need medical help for any reason, do not go to places like a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

The NHS and other health, care and support services are still here to help if you need to see us about an urgent health concern. You can find out more about when to get in touch with your GP practice and how services are working at the moment on the news page of our website.
