Stay at home to stop Coronavirus spreading

This is the latest advice from the Healthwatch Enfield

The single most important action we can all take, in fighting Coronavirus is to stay at home in order to protect the NHS and save lives.

When we reduce our day-to-day contact with other people, we will reduce the spread of the infection. That is why the Government has introduced new measures to tackle the spread of coronavirus, including a ban on public gatherings of more than two people.

According to guidance, you should now only leave the house for one of four reasons:

  1. Shop for basic essentials – only when you really need to.
  2. One form of exercise a day – such as a run, walk or cycle, alone or with other people you live with.
  3. Medical need – for example, to visit a pharmacy or deliver essential supplies to a vulnerable person.
  4. Travel to and from work – but only where this is absolutely necessary.

Your NHS needs you

The NHS is “rallying the troops” for the war on Coronavirus, with volunteers being called up to help vulnerable people stay safe and well at home.

The nation is looking for up to 250,000 volunteers to help up to 1.5 million people who have been asked to shield themselves from Coronavirus because of underlying health conditions.

Members of the public can sign up and can be called on to do simple but vital tasks such as:

  • delivering medicines from pharmacies
  • driving patients to appointments
  • bringing them home from hospital
  • making regular phone calls to check on people isolating at home

You can sign up via the ‘Good SAM’ app. Once you have registered and checks are complete you will be provided a log-in to the GoodSAM Responder app. Switch the app to ‘on duty’, and you’ll see live and local volunteer tasks to pick from nearby.

Getting practical help locally

Enfield Council and Enfield Voluntary Action have brought together a group of local organisations to offer help to Enfield residents who are impacted by the Coronavirus crisis and are in need of extra support. Please help spread the word by passing this information on to your friends and family, especially those that do not have access to the internet.

Information about visiting inpatients at local hospitals

To protect patients, visitors and staff, local hospitals such as The North Middlesex University Hospital and The Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust (including Chase Farm and Barnet Hospitals) have now stopped visiting on all wards until further notice. Specific exceptions do apply to some wards, such as the labour ward and for patients without Coronavirus who are receiving end of life care. Please read specific guidance for each hospital before visiting.
