Testing for Covid-19
19th September 2020 - 4:20 PM
Please do not contact your surgery about Covid-19 testing.
As you know, The National Testing Programme is experiencing sustained and exceptionally high demand and this is expected to remain high for the next two weeks.
We know that some people are struggling to get a test booking online. If this is the case, please keep going back to the website or 119 service and re-attempt your booking later in the day.
Please note that tests are for persons with symptoms of possible COVID19, and not asymptomatic persons, unless you have been instructed by Public Health or the Test and Trace service.
If a person tests positive for COVID19, there is no need for other members of their household to have a test. All household contacts should self-isolate for 14 days as per national guidance.
