Overview

COVID-19 medicines delivery unit (CMDU)

The COVID-19 medicines delivery unit (CMDU) is based at Guy's Hospital, 14th floor, tower wing. We provide new COVID-19 treatments to people at the highest risk in south east London that have tested positive for COVID-19.

Further information on the treatment and eligibility criteria can be found on the NHS England treatments for coronavirus page.

How to get treatment

If you are at the highest risk of getting seriously ill with COVID-19 you may have received a letter about the new treatments. If you have received this letter, your local CMDU will contact you if:

  • you have tested positive for COVID-19

  • you have COVID-19 symptoms 

Please make sure you take a test if you have symptoms. If your symptoms have not resolved, and CMDU have not contacted you within 48 hours of this result, please call 111 and ask for an urgent referral to your local CMDU.

You can find information on conditions considered at highest risk on the NHS England treatments for coronavirus page.

Please take a test immediately if you think that you are at the highest risk of getting seriously ill with COVID-19 and have both:

  • not received a letter about new treatments

  • started to develop symptoms that might be due to COVID-19

If your COVID-19 result is positive, contact NHS 111 and let them know you would like a referral to a CMDU.
