What should my next step be

As you are not registered in UK you need to see a private GP to get the prescription

There are 2 options for you to get prescription for your medicines in UK

The first option is either you need to see private GP around you 

The second option is usually local hospital emergency where you can get medicines straight away for few days

As you are a physician also and have COVID best would be to go to local hospital A++E

where if needed they could do X ray and if agreed steroids also

that is the quickest possible way
