What Should I do if I think I have Coronavirus?

Official guidance and advice

from the Public Health Agency

You can ring NHS 111 for information or advice and they will help you decide if you need to contact your GP.

Calling your GP is only necessary if you have:

  • an existing health condition;

  • problems with your immune system;

  • very serious symptoms.

Do not attend your GP surgery or emergency department in person before calling ahead and speaking with someone.

If it is a medical emergency and you need to call an ambulance, dial 999 and inform the operator of your symptoms.
