How to get tested
How to get tested or pick up home test kits if you have no symptoms.
Who can get tested?
Anyone with no Covid-19 symptoms can get tested twice a week. You can opt to:
- have a supervised test at a test centre - see our live map further down the page
- pick up rapid home test kits at a test centre or at a local pharmacy
There are now three different types of rapid home testing kits available so always read the instructions before taking your test. You can also watch videos on GOV.UK on how to do the different tests.
Do I need to book a test?
No. You can visit any centre during the opening times next to each centre. You just need a mobile number or email address to register when you arrive.
What do I do if I test positive?
If you get a positive result to a symptom-free test, you must self-isolate and book a PCR test to confirm you have the virus.
Where are the test centres?
See the test centre locations, opening times and how busy each one is in ‘live time’ in either a map or list view. All sites are wheelchair accessible.
