Covid Oximetry @home service in your local area

Posted:

The Covid-19 Oximetry @home service is now available across Cheshire and Merseyside. If you have tested positive for coronavirus and are in any of the groups below, you can now access the Covid Oximetry @home service to track early changes in your symptoms.

You are eligible if you are:

  • 65 or older
  • have underlying health conditions that make you clinically extremely vulnerable
  • are pregnant

The service provides a pulse oximeter, which allows you to regularly check your oxygen levels. Lower oxygen levels are a sign that you need to seek additional medical help. A pulse oximeter is a small, easy-to-use medical device that is put on the tip of the finger.

If you have tested positive for Covid-19 and think you could be eligible for the Covid Oximetry @home service, call your GP. Or if you are pregnant, you can also talk to your midwife.
