New Covid treatments

I’ve had an NHS email saying I’m eligible for these. They’ll send a PCR test and, if I think I have Covid and test positive, they arrange the treatment. This could be tablets or an infusion.
I wonder what happens if I get ill before my PCR test arrives? I doubt we’ll get any post for the next fortnight (post staff shortages, lots of bank holidays) Also, if I have to go to hospital for the infusion, who’s going to take me, knowing I have Covid?
I think I’m eligible because I’m on long term steroids. My
daughter who has rheumatoid arthritis has not been offered it.

I thought the new treatments were in tablet form?
