Accessing Coronavirus Testing

There is now access to coronavirus testing for all UK patients over 5 years old who have had new onset in the last 5 days of a new persistent cough or a fever over 37.8 degrees or a loss or change of sense of smell or taste. Tests are throat and nose swabs and can be done at a drive through testing centre or a pack can be sent to your home. Tests cannot be accessed via 111 or the GP practice.
