Dear Patients, we have had dozens of calls this morning from patients reporting coughs, colds, high temperatures, sore throats, etc. but they haven’t organised a PCR test. As these symptoms can indicate Covid-19 infection, it is really important that a PCR test is booked so we are aware how best to advise and treat patients. The guidance is that if you have symptoms of Covid, you should organise a PCR test. Lateral flow tests are for testing people who don’t have symptoms. If you have a negative PCR result and your cough and cold symptoms continue, you can seek advice from a Community Pharmacist in the first instance. If they feel your symptoms are of a more serious nature, they can refer to the GP Practice. If you’re unsure of what to do, see for help with your symptoms. Many thanks.
