In line with national guidance, antibody testing (to see if you have had Coronavirus) will be rolled out in Suffolk and North East Essex in a safe and phased way. It has begun with NHS hospital staff. We will keep you updated as to when this test is available to different staff and patient groups. Meanwhile, please may we request that you DO NOT ASK YOUR GP about availability. This will help us to help you with all other urgent calls. We will make an announcement as soon as we can.
