- If you think you have symptoms stay at home and take a PCR test
- Wear face coverings in crowded places and on public transport
- Check in to venues when you go out
- Wash your hands with soap regularly, and for at least 20 seconds
- Get vaccinated
Symptoms of Coronavirus include a high temperature, a new continuous cough or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.
Directions for Covid-19 vaccinations at Brackley Medical Centre
The current vaccine centre hub for this area is the new Brackley Medical Centre, Wellington Road, Brackley, situated just before you enter Brackley off the A43 roundabout.
It's next door to the big new Sainsbury's store. Head for Sainsbury's and you should then see signs for Brackley Medical Centre.
Walk-In Vaccination Clinics
A pop-up vaccination clinic has been set up at Greens Norton Community Centre (next door to the Medical Centre). Dates and times vary from week to week, as batches of vaccines are received. Vaccinations can be booked via the NHS or you can just turn up during opening hours.
The clinic is run by ECG Training who can be contacted on 0845 423 8993.
Look out for updates in our News section and on Facebook community groups.
Think NHS 111 First
NHS England and NHS Improvement has launched the next phase of the latest 'Help Us, Help You' campaign which focuses on the NHS 111 service as a new way to access A&E.
If you have an urgent but not life-threatening medical need, make sure you contact NHS 111 first rather than going straight to A&E. If you do need urgent care, then NHS 111 can now book you in to be seen quickly and safely in A&E.
As well as this, NHS 111 is also able to direct to or book an appointment at Urgent Treatment Centres, access to Out of Hours GP Services, pharmacies, emergency dental services and walk-in clinics.
Contacting 111 first will also help the NHS to keep you safe by maintaining social distancing and ensure that you receive the right care in the right place, in a more timely and safe way.
If you or your loved one have a life-threatening illness or injury then you should always use 999 and if you do arrive at A&E without contacting NHS 111 you will still receive medical care, with emergency treatments prioritised.
Just think 111 first. When you think you need A&E, contact NHS 111 by phone or online at https://111.nhs.uk/
Further information about NHS 111 First is available at www.northamptonshireccg.nhs.uk
From 16 August ENGLAND
If you're fully vaccinated or under 18 you no longer need to self-isolate after close contact with someone who has COVID-19. If you have symptoms you should still isolate and take a PCR test. Find out when to self-isolate and what to do on the NHS website.
The Town Council's venues are now open. Only one booking is being allowed at any given time and thorough cleaning of each venue occurs between any bookings, to minimise the possibility of cross-contamination.
