With people staying home and certainly aiming to keep away from hospitals at all costs – this is causing concern in the health service. Particularly cancer referrals are way down and A&E’s are quiet.
The HSE has asked us to spread this message to all, reminding us not to ignore other health issues that might arise regardless of Covid-19. Remember if you have to go to the GP or to the hospital precautions can be taken to keep you safe.
If you are feeling unwell, don’t ignore your symptoms, call your GP. They can assess you over the phone to ensure the best treatment plan. If you need emergency health care, please dial 999 or 112, our services are open and working.
