Latest update on Covid-19 testing units available to support local response
Testing is a vital part in our fight against the spread of Covid-19 and to help reduce the rate of people contracting the virus, your help is still needed as much as ever.
Demand for testing has increased so if a booking isn't immediately available please try again. Results are taking a little longer than usual to process so please contact 119 if your results have not been received after 48 hours.
Some sites are pedestrian-only and don’t have drive-through testing. If you are driving to these sites we recommend that you plan your parking in advance.
You can get a test at one of the testing centres by booking an appointment in advance.
