It is important we avoid the virus wherever possible, and if we can’t fully avoid it we know how to protect ourselves. Rule number 1 is always follow the latest government guidelines. Guidance is regularly changing at a local and national level. The changes are well described in the media, however you can find out the latest official UK government guidance HERE.
Some simple measures Avante recommends you take to keep yourself safe and well through the pandemic are:
Washing your hands regularly
Wearing a mask
Live a healthy lifestyle
Avoid crowded places
If you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus, you should get a test immediately and stay at home together with your family until you have your results. You can visit NHS Covid Website/ to check your symptoms, and if eligible to arrange a PCR test on the NHS you can book via their test sites or a postal home self-test kit.
Alternatively, if you live in our catchment area and would like a professional to test you at home, Avante can visit you to do a private PCR test.

Is seeing a Health Professional in person safe during the COVID pandemic?
As a digital first service, we only see you in person if we see it as important for your care. As well as this we have strict procedures in place to ensure we can consult with you as safely as possible during the pandemic. If you have symptoms, we ensure only the absolute minimum time is spent seeing you face to face (usually just for the examination and/or test) and the rest is done by video or phone. If you are symptom free, our doctors always use PPE to protect you (and them) from any transmission risk. Have another need? Contact us here for more information
