Please see updated links below to the latest information and advice on coronavirus restrictions. Article originally published March 2020.

P3 takes the health and welfare of everyone using our services very seriously.

In response to the Covid-19 outbreak we have changed how you can access support to ensure both your safety and the safety of our staff.

Please take the time to check your local service page within this website for specific advice on how our services are currently delivered. You can do this quickly and easily by going to our homepage and typing your service name into the ‘Get Help From Us’ box in the website header.

We want to reassure everyone accessing support from P3 that we are in regular contact with Public Health England and it is our policy to follow their advice, together with guidance from the NHS and the Foreign & Commonwealth Office. Locally we are also working closely with our commissioning partners and Directors of Public Health to ensure we are acting on the best advice to enable our services to continue to operate.

Should you have any concerns about your health please contact the free NHS 111 helpline or go to the NHS 111 coronavirus advice website.

The latest advice and developments on the Covid-19 situation can be found on the GOV.UK and Public Health England websites, including current restrictions and the proposed easing of national lockdown in spring/summer 2021.
