Residents can also get a rapid test through the following options:

If you test positive from a rapid lateral flow test taken at home, you will be recommended to attend a symptomatic PCR test site for a confirmation test. You, and those you live with, should self-isolate immediately. You will be contacted by NHS Test and Trace to identify anyone you have come into close contact with. If you cannot get to a test site, order a PCR home test to take at home by ordering online or by calling 119. Book a test here

If your test is negative you can come out of self-isolation but you need to continue to observe public health and roadout out of lockdown guidance.
