Getting Tested For Coronavirus Posted on 18 Sep 2020

 

Getting tested for coronavirus

 

If you have symptoms of coronavirus, you can book a test using the online booking system at nhs.uk/coronavirus or by calling 119. There are a number of testing centres across our area.

 

GP practices cannot give you a coronavirus test. If you do have symptoms, please do not come to our GP practice in person, you will be putting others at risk. Stay at home and get in touch with us over the phone or via our website.

 

Symptoms of coronavirus include; a new persistent cough, a high fever or loss of smell or taste.

 

We know that there is a high demand for tests, so please only book a test if you have symptoms.

 

If you have any coronavirus symptoms you must isolate immediately (stay at home) for 10 days (don’t wait for a test or a test result before doing so).

 

To stop the spread of coronavirus, please continue to wash your hands regularly, use a face covering when social distancing is not possible and try to keep your distance from people you do not live with.
