Food complaints

If you think you have food poisoning

Symptoms of vomiting and diarrhoea are often caused by viral gastroenteritis, in some cases they can be due to bacterial food poisoning.

If you have symptoms of vomiting and/or diarrhoea you should stay away from work, school or nursery until at least 48 hours after the symptoms have passed. You should also avoid visiting anyone in hospital or care homes during this time. This will help to stop the spread of gastroenteritis.

Further information can be found on the NHS website.

Try to avoid going to your GP or the hospital, as gastroenteritis can spread to others very easily. Call NHS 111 or your GP if you're concerned or need any advice.

If your job includes handling food you must speak to your manager before returning to work.

Further information for food handlers can be found on the Food Standards Agency website.
