Stay healthy this Christmas

The best way to enjoy Christmas is to plan ahead, keep it simple, stay calm and don’t overdo it! Be prepared by stocking up on over-the counter medicines such as painkillers , throat lozenges, indigestion, cough and cold remedies. Order your prescribed medicines before you run out and remember to visit your local pharmacy if you need advice. Our new website has a wide range of health advice www.orchardpharmacy.co.uk Moderation is the secret! Too much festive food can cause heartburn, indigestion and put on excess pounds! Eat healthy foods such as soups, stews and roast vegetables which are rich in vitamins and fibre. Stay calm and relaxed by using herbal remedies. Revive your spirits with aromatherapy oils. Manuka Honey boosts your immune system and is great to have at home for coughs, sore throats and stomach complaints. Try to keep to the recommended limits of alcohol: 3-4 units for men, 2-3 units for women. Avoid hangovers by drinking plenty of water and alternate alcohol with soft drinks. Eat a good meal beforehand and pace yourself! Rather than be a couch potato, go for a walk or take some other exercise as it will help to ease stress and help you sleep better. You may consider giving up smoking in the New Year. Ask us about our Stop Smoking Scheme Have a Healthy Christmas and lets hope that Santa is good to us all!

The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of:

For most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness If you have coronavirus symptoms:
  • Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital
  • You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home
  • Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you're staying at home
  • Plan ahead and ask others for help to ensure that you can successfully stay at home and consider what can be done for vulnerable people in the household
  • Ask your employer, friends and family to help you to get the things you need to stay at home
  • Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, each time using soap and water, or use hand sanitiser

Stay at Home
  • If you live alone and you have symptoms of coronavirus illness (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started. (See ending isolation section below for more information)
  • If you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill
  • It is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community
  • For anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14 day isolation period. (See ending isolation section below for more information
  • If you can, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period
  • If you cannot move vulnerable people out of your home, stay away from them as much as possible
