How to book a COVID-19 test Posted on 18 Sep 2020

Your GP Practice cannot assist you in booking a Covid-19 test and does not provide Covid-19 testing; this can only be done via the national online booking portal.  Your GP Practice cannot advise you on whether or not your child or children are safe to return to school; this should be discussed with the school(s) concerned.

Please do not visit or make an appointment at your GP practice if you have any symptoms of Covid-19 (high temperature, new continuous cough, loss of taste and/or smell).

The Government is scaling up it's testing capacity even further to 500,000 tests a day by the end of October, expanding it's network of testing sites and laboratories, as well as investing in new testing technologies.  Whilst this scaling up is happening, the service is currently very busy.  We would ask anyone who tries to book a test and is unable to do so, or who is offered a location or time which is not convenient, to please wait a few hours and then try again.
