COVID-19: City and Hackney treatment hub in action

City and Hackney are running a COVID-19 treatment hub, where you can be referred if you have symptoms of COVID-19 and your doctor feels you need to be examined.

If you need to go in person, your surgery will give you directions and plan for your visit. Clinic areas are operating extra levels of cleaning and the staff is wearing the right level of PPE.

Doctors working in the treatment centres may also get a set of tests done without you leaving your house – someone may come and take your blood pressure, pulse, temperature and oxygen levels when resting and after short exercise, such as walking up the stairs. This can help the doctor to decide how well or ill you are even without examining you.
