Covid-19 Testing and Contact Tracing

Test and Trace Service

If you have received a positive test, you will be contacted by the NHS Test and Trace service (or Newham Council). They will ask you to provide details of people you have been in close contact with over the last few days.

You may also be contacted by NHS Test and Trace if you have been in close contact with someone who has received a positive test result.

Find out more information about NHS Test and Trace on the NHS website.

If you have any questions about testing or the test and trace service you can contact our Newham COVID-19 Helpline at 020 7473 9711 or email [email protected].

The Helpline is open between 9am and 7pm, 7 days a week. Call handlers can speak multiple languages.
