Access to testing in Devon

Last week, DCC reported that the government has diverted some of the testing resources from parts of the country where prevalence is lower, to other parts where prevalence of cases and demand for testing is higher.

That's meant that people are finding that access to testing locally is less available.

Dr Virginia Pearson, Director of Public Health Devon, said:

"There may be issues with people 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 cases.

"You must still follow the national guidance on getting tested, which is that if you develop any of the symptoms - a new and continuous cough; high temperature; or change in your sense of taste or smell – you should book a test via the NHS website or call 119 to if you have problems using the internet."

If you are unable to book a slot, you can email for advice on what to do:
