Advice for patients with pre-existing conditions
Get tested for coronavirus (COVID-19)
There are different tests you can get to check if you have coronavirus (COVID-19). The test you need depends on why you’re getting tested.
The 2 main tests are:
PCR tests – mainly for people with symptoms, they’re sent to a lab to be checked
Rapid lateral flow tests – only for people who do not have symptoms, they give a quick result using a device similar to a pregnancy test.
