Please Engage with NHS track and trace.

The national initiative to try and  control  the spread of Covid 19 includes the NHS track and trace system. If you suspect you may have caught the virus or receive a call  from an NHS contact tracer (it will be an 0300 number), please follow instructions. For details see NHS track  and Trace.119  is the number to call for a test, or book on line by following the link above

Who can get a test

You can get a test:

  • for yourself, if you have coronavirus symptoms now (a high temperature, a new, continuous cough, or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste)
  • for someone you live with, if they have symptoms
  • if you live in England and have been told to have a test before you go into hospital, for example, for surgery
  • if your local council asks you to get a test

You will never be asked to pay and so be aware that there are scams suggesting you need a test but must pay. This is not the case.
