If you’ve got a tummy bug like Norovirus or another illness which causes vomiting and diarrhoea, make sure you don’t spread it to friends and family – especially those who might already be vulnerable like hospital patients.

If one of our wards has to close because of diarrhoea and vomiting outbreak, it means none of the patients can receive visitors. Until the outbreak is over and we’ve done a deep clean, we also can’t let any new patients onto the ward, which means delays and difficulties for patients and staff.

So if you’ve got symptoms like feeling sick, vomiting, or diarrhoea, don’t spread your germs around!

How to feel better

  • Drink plenty of fluids
  • Take paracetamol for any fever or aches and pains

  • Sanitise surfaces
  • Eat a healthy diet, try and get plenty of sleep and look after yourself
  • Try and avoid those suffering with an illness
