For example, they may be trying to reduce the risk of infection to other patients, they may not have sufficient PPE to safely conduct an examination, or the individual GP may be more vulnerable to a significant COVID-19 infection. Whatever the reason, we are here to help.
With your consent, a letter will be sent to your usual GP outlining your assessment and management.
Test results which are negative will be communicated to you via text.
In the case there is a positive result such as influenza, COVID-19, whooping cough or other respiratory viruses, you will be called by one of the Respiratory Clinic GPs.
Your usual GP will also be notified of your results.
If you are diagnosed with a positive test result for COVID-19, we want to support you every step of the way.
If testing was performed by us, you will be notified negative results via a text message to the mobile number you provided at registration.
If your test result is positive, we will call you directly.
Expect to be notified after 48 hours from time of testing.
