Protecting your family and community

National Lockdown restrictions were eased on Monday 19 July

COVID-19 restrictions in Kirklees tells you more about what this means.

Protect the NHS and your family

Help the NHS, Help you.

Your NHS has introduced a range of measures to ensure your safety when receiving medical care. You can help protect the NHS, your family, friends and community by:

  • Washing hands regularly
  • Isolating with symptoms and getting a test
  • Isolating if you are identified as a close contact.

These simple steps help stop the virus in its track.

In doing everything to prevent yourself and others from catching the virus you are helping to stop a chain of events which could lead to you or a loved one requiring hospital treatment.

Remember every person admitted for COVID-19 adds additional pressure on the NHS this winter.

Don't ignore symptoms - keep your appointments

It's important to remember the NHS is still there for you and if you are worried about any symptoms you or someone you know is experiencing you should contact your GP - especially if those symptoms could be cancer. The NHS are also encouraging;

  • Pregnant women to keep appointments and seek advice if they are worried about their baby
  • Those who are already being treated for a health issue to keep their routine appointments
  • Those experiencing mental health issues to access NHS services and support

Show your support

The first lockdown saw visual support for the NHS every Thursday when the nation came together to clap for all our key workers. We need you to continue showing this support by following the guidelines. You never know when you or your loved ones will need the NHS so to help ensure they can be there for you, help them.

Help the NHS, help you - show them your support and that Kirklees Cares.
