Wuhan novel coronavirus (WN-CoV) is a new respiratory illness that has not previously been seen in humans.
The risk of getting the illness in the UK is low. If there is a case in the UK, health professionals will aim to contact anyone who has been in close contact with the infected person. If you have not been contacted, be reassured you are extremely unlikely to catch Wuhan novel coronavirus.
Symptoms include: feeling tired, difficulty breathing, a high temperature and a cough.
If you have travelled to China, especially Wuhan City, in the last two weeks and feel unwell, please telephone either 111 or the Surgery for advice. Please do not attend the surgery in the first instance.
