Covid-19 / Sun 1st Aug 2021 at 06:21am
WITH release from lockdown now passed, we will do the Covid-19 report a few times a week.
We are doing this because we want to give Harlow residents an accurate picture of where we are re Covid-19.
The report covers UK figures; Princess Alexandra Hospital figures; the Local Authority table which gives Harlow’s position out of 315 local authorities, as well as rate per thousand and the number of cases.
We have a dedicated Covid-19 channel which has over 1200 stories.

Can anyone please tell me when gp surgeries will go back to precondition, where you can make an appointment to physically see your dr. Instead of telephone consultations. I thought freedom day would have signalled a return to normal. I can go to a night club or football match but I can’t sit 2 metres away from my gp’s desk with a face mask a get a one on one consultation in the presence of my dr. I am typically talking about the Hamilton practice at Keats house harlow
