Please note that where patients have been advised by one of our Practice clinicians to contact the Abban Street Podiatry Clinic they must complete a referral form: Podiatry self referral form. This can then be emailed to High-UHB.SouthandMidPodiatry@nhs.net (please mark e-mail “new referral”). Please note the clinic is prioritising their caseload due to Covid; seeing those patients with the greatest risk/need as a first priority. This may mean that some patients presently on their waiting list may not be seen for some time.
Norovirus, which causes diarrhoea and vomiting, is one of the most common stomach bugs in the UK. It's also called the "winter vomiting bug" because it's more common in winter, although you can catch it at any time of the year.
Norovirus can be very unpleasant but it usually clears up by itself in a few days.
You can normally look after yourself or your child at home.
Try to avoid going to your GP, as norovirus can spread to others very easily. Call your GP or NHS 111 if you're concerned or need any advice
