Testing is one of the tools that will help us get through the pandemic and back to normal. There are lots of ways to help you get the test you need.
If you have symptoms:
• a high temperature
• a new, continuous cough
• a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste
If you have coronavirus symptoms (including a high temperature / a new, continuous cough / a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste) then you need to take a symptomatic test (also known as a PCR test) and self-isolate. 
This can be done by booking a test at one of the symptomatic testing sites or by ordering a home test kit. Book online or call 119.
