How to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus​
  1. Wash your hands more often than usual, for 20 seconds using soap and hot water, particularly after coughing, sneezing and blowing your nose, or after being in public areas where other people are doing so.
  2. Use hand sanitiser if that’s all you have access to.
  3. To reduce the spread of germs when you cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue, or your sleeve (not your hands) if you don’t have a tissue, and throw the tissue away immediately. Then wash your hands or use a hand sanitising gel.​
  4. Clean and disinfect regularly touched objects and surfaces using your regular cleaning products to reduce the risk of passing the infection on to other people.
  5. Open doors and windows when possible to allow fresh air flow.
  6. It is again mandatory to wear face coverings when in shops, public transport and advised when it is hard to stay away from other people( particularly indoors or in a crowded area).
  7. If you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home, or your condition gets worse, or your symptoms do not get better after 7 days, then use the coronavirus service. Alternatively, call NHS 111 or for a medical emergency dial 999
  8. It is also advised to get the COVID19 Vaccinations.

    ​Westmeria Recruitment is acting as a bridge between myself and my current placement. They have supported me personally during the most critical time in my Nursing career during the Pandemic Lockdown.

    There was no covid support in the previous team I worked in, which was my last placement by another agency. As agency staff we were not allowed to work from home which meant we had to be in the team base 5 days a week and therefore have daily contact with other people and therefore be more at risk of contacting covid.

I commend the management immensely on their astuteness."

They listen, understand my requirements and show an excellent knowledge of mental health services. My requirements for the services I run are very particular (CAMHS) and I have had some really excellent Mental Health nurses who have been able to hit the floor running with regards to picking up caseloads. Service users have als...
