Important Health & wellbeing NoticeCoronavirus (COVID-19)

As a hospital-based organisation, Radio Grapevine always understands the importance of good health and hygiene practices, particularly as our volunteers are often in close proximity to more vulnerable patients (such as during request collecting and ward visiting). However, this situation requires everyone to follow good basic hygiene practices and to follow guidance from the NHS and the UK and Scottish Governments.

From NHS Lothian:

If you have concerns about Coronavirus (COVID-19) and are worried about symptoms, you must stay home and call your GP or NHS 24 (111) out of hours where you will receive help. NHS Lothian does have a drive-through service, but it is not a drop-in clinic and you need an appointment. You must not approach a healthcare centre (hospital or surgery) or the drive-through testing service directly. You will not be tested there without an appointment.

The situation is rapidly changing and it is important to stay as up-to-date as possible.
