Reminder - Reporting Test Results

What to do if you incorrectly report a positive test result

The reporting of test results can be difficult at times, with the options of Positive and Negative so close together, especially on a phone! These things do happen and it is not an issue, but you must ensure that if there has been a mistake made with you reporting a positive instead of negative, you email
[email protected]
as soon as possible- this allows us to liaise with the relevant authorities to identify and then rectify the mistake swiftly.

We continue to appreciate your support with the testing at home to help support keeping our community safe.

Many thanks,

Miss Gemma Owens
