Hospitals in Bishop's Stortford, Harlow and Epping are asking all outpatients to screen themselves for Covid-19.

Anyone with an appointment at the Herts and Essex in Stortford, Princess Alexandra in Harlow and St Margaret's in Epping now needs to complete a lateral flow test the day before and provide evidence of a negative result when they arrive.

They should upload the result to the NHS mobile app as it is this result that will need to be shown. Those without a smartphone must provide evidence via an email or a photo of the test.

If the test result is positive, the patient should reschedule their appointment

They must also attend the appointment on their own, except for patients who require support or for a parent accompanying a child. In these circumstances, Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust (PAHT) requests that the supporter or parent also takes a lateral flow test.

If the test result is positive, the patient should reschedule their appointment and arrange to have a Covid-19 PCR test.
