How to help stop the spread of the winter vomiting bug (norovirus)

  • No visits to hospitals, care homes and GP surgeries if you are suffering from symptoms of norovirus – send someone else to visit loved ones until you are better
  • Once you’ve been symptom-free for at least 48 hours, you’re safe to return to  work, school or visit hospitals and care homes
  • Regularly wash your hands with soap and warm water, especially after using the toilet, and before eating or preparing food
  • Only hand-washing will prevent spread of norovirus – alcohol hand gels don't kill the virus

Locate your nearest defibrillators 

Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) are proven to dramatically increase the chances of survival in cases of cardiac arrest. They work by delivering an electric shock to restart a person’s heart. The small, portable machines give clear, spoken instructions and are designed to be used by anyone, even without training.

Visit our defibrillators web page to find out more.
