COVID-19 medicines delivery unit (CMDU)


Making a referral

Referrals must be made by a health care professional or relevant member of staff, or can be made by the patient on 111.

Patients being referred must:

  • meet condition eligibility criteria
  • have COVID-19 symptoms
  • be within 7 days of both the start of the symptoms 
  • be within our catchment area (if they are not we will re-direct but this may take time)

GP referrals

All GP referrals must be submitted using the NHS e-Referral service (formerly Choose and Book).

Referrals from other health professionals

Please email your referral to [email protected].

Email referrals must contain the patient's:

  • NHS number
  • age
  • date the symptoms started
  • high risk condition or therapy (for example immunosuppression)
  • vaccination history
  • phone number
  • postcode

Patients who do not meet the condition eligibility criteria can be referred to the panoramic trial:

If any patients have concerns after their treatment please ask them to contact 111 or 999 services as appropriate.
