You are probably aware there are pressures being experienced with the national Covid 119 home testing service.
Patients are reporting difficulty in accessing testing so Public Health have updated us on the Testing Options:
1. Drive through test sites (O2 Arena or Lea Valley) – opening times 10am-5pm
2. Walk through test site (Hilda Road, East Ham E6) – opening times 8-8pm
Please advise patients the testing is done at the Hilda Road entrance NOT East Ham Care Centre/Shrewsbury Road HC
(approximately 200 tests currently being processed per day)
NB both drive through and walk through normally provide results in 24 hours but this is now delayed due to reduced lab
