The doctors would like to remind everyone of the difference between the two types of Covid-19 tests.
Lateral flow tests are a screening tool for people without symptoms e.g. for school/work. They are NOT reliable if you have any symptoms of Covid-19.
PCR tests are the tests you need to book online or by calling 119. With the emergence of the new Omicron variant, it is really important that you isolate AND arrange a PCR test if you get any Covid symptoms. Book online here: https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test
