I was due my depot today at the health centre. But these last three days I have had a tricky cough. In the uk you are currently not allowed in a health centre if you have a cough for COVID reasons.
Spoke to a member of the community nursing team yesterday. We agreed that I get a covid test and we would take it from there.
Did a ‘lateral flow’ covid test (test you do at home. You get lots off the government). It came back negative for covid.
Went to phone the nurse I spoke to last night but they are not in office today. My named nurse is back in tomorrow.
I suppose this means I have to wait until at least tomorrow to get my jag. Is no major hassle - because the jag is long acting you get a bit of flexibility over injection times.
Just checking I am doing all that is required of me:
- I notified them about my cough
- I took a government covid test which came back negative
- I tried to inform the nurse my test was negative (although I still have a cough and am a wee breathless)
I don’t want to piss any of the health team off. Am I doing everything right?
