Next Steps

  • On receipt of the form, one of the practice doctors or nurses will contact you to confirm receipt and clarify any issues via phone consultation if needed
  • If you meet the current criteria for Covid-19 testing as outlined by Health Protection Surveillance Centre Guidelines, we will submit an e-referral to request Covid-19 testing to the National Ambulance Service (NAS).
  • We will send you a text message to confirm that the referral has been sent.
  • NAS will review your referral and they will contact you directly, if deemed appropriate, to arrange this and give further information. This may take a number of days depending on demand and we have no way of speeding this up, please be patient.
  • If your symptoms worsen whilst you are awaiting testing, please contact us.
  • While you are waiting for us to contact you, please, please, please self-isolate at home to help slow the spread of the virus.
  • Please do not come in to the practice as you risk passing on infection to other patients and our staff.
