COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Public Health services continue to operate but have been amended in line with government advice, to adhere to social distancing guidelines and to support people in isolation.

  • Unless noted below, all services continue to operate and still accept new referrals.
  • Generally, more support will be offered by telephone, Microsoft Teams and other remote means rather than face-to-face contact. In most cases group work has been suspended.
  • Drop-in clinics at many services have changed – please check the service’s website or social media before travelling to a clinic without an appointment.
  • All helplines and enquiry telephone services continue to operate as normal. This includes the Safe To Talk domestic abuse helpline on 0800 111 4998.
  • For more detail please check the service’s website or social media.

Please note:

  • Clean needles and other injecting equipment remain available via pharmacy needle exchange services as normal
  • Health and wellbeing advice and support is available from the Best You health portal.

Smoking and COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Evidence suggests smokers are at greater risk of complications from coronavirus, including:

  • getting acute respiratory infections
  • the infection lasting longer
  • the infection being more serious than it would be for someone who does not smoke

Support to stop smoking – including structured support and access to medications – is available from HLS Coventry on 0800 122 3780.

Some of these links may take you directly to our local services. These services are commissioned by the City Council, are free (unless otherwise stated) and confidential.
