If you have symptoms

  • Stay at home if you have a high temperature (37.8 or above) or a new, continuous cough
  • Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
  • You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you’re staying at home

How long to stay at home

  • If you have symptoms, you should self-isolate and not leave your house for 7 days or until your symptoms are gone
  • If you live with other people, they should stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person got symptoms

If you live with someone who is 70 or over, has a long-term condition, is pregnant or has a weakened immune system, try to find somewhere else for them to stay for 14 days. If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible. Use the NHS 111 online service if you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home, your condition gets worse or your symptoms do not get better after 7 days.

Pain Management

At Sevenoaks Medical Centre, the Pain Management Team provides expert advice and treatment for patients with chronic pain, to alleviate their suffering. While pain management does not eliminate the patient’s pain, it will allow them to regain control and enhance their quality of life.

The nature and severity of a patient’s pain will determine the techniques used to manage their condition. In some cases, a patient can often experience more than one type of pain. This will require a combined approach, including techniques such as activity pacing, breathing relaxation, muscle relaxation, providing strategies to combat anxiety and to overcome negative thinking as a result of the pain.

Pain management provides patients with the tools to take control of the pain they are experiencing and their life. With the help of the Pain Management Team at Sevenoaks Medical Centre, patients can find their own route to a life that does not revolve around the disability or distress that suffering from chronic pain can cause.
