Symptoms and Testing

Coronavirus symptoms may include:

  • a high temperature or shivering (chills) – a high temperature means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste
  • shortness of breath
  • feeling tired or exhausted
  • an aching body
  • a headache
  • a sore throat
  • a blocked or runny nose
  • loss of appetite
  • diarrhoea
  • feeling sick or being sick

Try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people if you have symptoms of COVID-19. Take extra care to avoid close contact with anyone who is at higher risk of getting seriously ill from COVID-19. You can go back to your normal activities when you feel better or do not have a high temperature.

Coronavirus testing:

Free testing for COVID-19 from the NHS has ended for most people in England. If you have symptoms of COVID-19, you are no longer required to do a rapid lateral flow or PCR test.

If you still want to get tested and you're not eligible for a free NHS test, you can pay for a COVID-19 test yourself.

Coronavirus Vaccinations

Eligible patients will be offered a booster of coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine in Spring 2024. Invitations are expected to be sent out in April.

If you have been invited to book a Coronavirus Vaccination by the NHS, you can do so here. If you cannot book online, please call 119.

Please speak to our reception team if you would like to confirm we have the correct contact details for you.

More information about the vaccination programme and FAQs can be found at;

Booking can be done at;

Please remember that the NHS will never ask for payment, ask for your bank details, arrive unannounced at your home to administer the vaccine or ask you to prove your identity by sending copies of personal documents or passport.

Coronavirus and Cancer: Advice during COVID-19

It is concerning that patients who might have symptoms that could be cancer, or changes unusual for them, are not seeking help from their GP due to COVID-19.

We would like to reinforce the importance of contacting the surgery without delay, if you are worried about changes or symptoms.
