COVID-19


The downloads on this page provide people living in north east London, guidance on national and local arrangements to test for COVID-19  if they (or one of their household) have very recently been displaying COVID-19 symptoms.

There is more detail on the national scheme, launched by the Government for essential workers to self-refer for a coronavirus test. This includes information on the eligible staff groups and the process to book a test. The options available through the national scheme include drive through centres at the O2 in Greenwich; Lea Valley and at Twickenham; home testing and mobile testing sites. 

Please do not attend a testing site without reading and following the guidance. You will require a booked appointment. 

Update 19 May 2020

The national testing offer has been expanded, and now includes people with the additional symptoms announced by the government on 18 May. If patients are symptomatic they should be encouraged to book via the national testing site. A choice of drive-through at nationally run regional centres or home tests delivered by Amazon will be available. There may be limited availability, but the web portal opens at 8am daily.
