COVID 19 Symptoms & Testing:
Please note new changes to PCR testing from Monday 3rd Jan, 2022. If you are aged between 4 nd 39 years you need to have a positive Antigen test before requesting a PCR Covid test.
If you have symptoms such as:
POSITIVE ANTIGEN TEST (AGE 4-39)
shortness of breath
loss of smell or taste
Recently returned from UK or abroad
you should self- isolate and speak with a doctor. If you are well enough you should complete the COVID-19 Testing Form to prioritise testing and a doctor can get back to you during the normal working hours.
Contact Tracing Advice:
If you are concerned that you have been in contact with someone with possible COVID-19 but you do not have any symptoms, please be aware that testing of possible contacts is arranged by the Public Health Contact Tracing Teams. Testing of people without symptoms is not available through GP surgeries. For more information on Contact Tracing, please click here.
