Community symptom-free testing

We're expanding our community offer which has seen us hand out testing kits in communities across the city. Going door-to-door offering kits has enabled our staff to have conversations with local people about the importance of getting tested and vaccinated, and to share information about how to get more test kits.

See details of streets we will be visiting in order to carry out community symptom-free testing.

As well as this work the council will be offering collection points at foodbanks throughout the city and the above community collect scheme.

Other ways to get tested

Pharmacies in the city continue to be a great way for people to access test kits in their communities.

See details of all symptom-free testing sites, test pick-up locations and opening times on NHS.UK.

Or you can order coronavirus (COVID-19) rapid lateral flow tests for home delivery.
