If you have any symptoms associated with coronavirus including a new continuous cough, a high temperature a loss of, or a change in your normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia) you are advised to follow the guidance on self-isolation. Please do not book a GP appointment or attend your GP practice.
You should arrange to have a test to see if you have COVID-19. For further details on how you can ask for a test and what to do if you have been in contact with a person who has coronavirus, read about the NHS Test and Trace service.
If your symptoms are serious, or get worse, NHS 111 has an online coronavirus tool that will check your symptoms and tell you if you need further medical help and advise you what to do.
Most importantly we ask the public to use our services appropriately and follow the national guidance on coronavirus which you can find on this page. Only call NHS 111 directly if you are advised to do so by the online service or if you cannot go online.
