Shortage of Covid Testing in Devon

 
We are experiencing some problems with accessing COVID-19 testing in Devon as a result of national laboratory capacity for analysing tests being directed to areas elsewhere with a higher prevalence of COVID-19 cases. This is a national issue. As a result, the Devon CCG are working hard to put additional local arrangements in place to boost our local testing availability until national testing capacity can be increased.
If you have symptoms please book a test as normal via the government website. If you are unable to book a slot please email d-ccg.devon.urgenttesting@nhs.net and you will be contacted by someone who will direct you to the nearest testing centre.
You can check your symptoms via 111 online or calling 111.
