Any patients requiring information about testing should visit the NHS website. Testing is now available to symptomatic people over the age of 5.  Patients who do not have access to or cannot use the internet can call a dedicated phone line below, which can be used to order a test if no other options are available.

The Coronavirus Testing Call Centre can be contacted on 0300 303 2713 between the hours of 07.00 and 23.00.  The majority of test results are sent automatically to the individual within four days but for any that aren’t, the Call Centre can help individuals to follow up on their results.
