  • Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you're staying at home

  • Ask your employer, friends and family to help you to get the things you need to stay at home

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

I’m on HRT and I’m hearing lots on the news about the cancer risk-should I be worried?

A This was new research that has just been published. In 2010, it was reported that there was a link with an increased risk of breast cancer but one of the problems then was that the amount of increase in the risk wasn’t clear. This study, from the Institute of Cancer Research and the National Cancer Registration Service of the UK showed that over a 6 year period 2% of the total developed breast cancer. First of all we are talking about the combined oral hormone replacement therapy (HRT)-it contains both oestrogen and progesterone. These are the hormones that are reduced as women go through the menopause or the ‘change of life’.

There are also other factors to take into account. There is a natural increase in the risk of breast cancer with women who have never breast fed, had their rst baby later in life.obesity and family history of the disease. Basically there are many factors at play of which the combined hormone treatment is certainly one of them increasing the risk.

In answer to your question, it needs to be an individual decision in consultation with your doctor as to whether HRT is the right treatment for you. The risk certainly increases the longer you remain on the treatment. Some women can experience symptoms such as uncontrolled sweats, dif culty sleeping, vaginal dryness and mood changes where HRT can bring much needed relief.
