Covid-19 testing in Norfolk and Waveney | Nov 2020

It is recommended that you look to access a free NHS Covid-19 test if at least one of the following applies:

  • you have a high temperature
  • you have a new, continuous cough
  • you’ve lost your sense of smell or taste or it’s changed
  • you’ve been asked to by a local council
  • you’re taking part in a government pilot project

You can also get a test for someone you live with if they have symptoms.

You may need to get tested if you’re due to have surgery or a medical procedure. The hospital will arrange this for you. Contact your hospital department if you have any questions. ​

As soon as you experience Covid-19 symptoms you must book a test within 5 days and self-isolate for 14 days. Tests should be booked via www.gov.uk or by calling NHS 119.

If you have difficulty getting a test on Day 1 of having Covid-19 symptoms, or the location or time are not convenient, be patient and try again a few hours later or the next day. More tests are made available throughout the day at www.gov.uk or by calling NHS 119.

Only people with pre-booked appointments will be accepted at regional testing centres or mobile testing units. However, if you have requested a home testing kit, this will be delivered to your nominated address for you to complete at home.

It’s really important that if you are experiencing Covid-19 symptoms that you do not visit your GP surgery, local hospital, or pharmacy.
