Symptom-free coronavirus testing

Collecting a home testing kit

You can now collect symptom-free tests so you can take them regularly at home.

You are able to book an appointment in advance to collect a test kit from one of our sites, or you can attend without an appointment.

Use our online system to book an appointment to collect a test kit from one of the following sites in York:

  • Foxwood Community Centre, Cranfield Place, YO24 3HY
  • Rawcliffe Recreation Association, The Pavilion, St Mark’s Grove, YO30 5TS
  • University of York, Wentworth Way, Heslington, YO10 5NA
  • York St John University, Lord Mayor's Walk, YO31 7EX

If you're attending without an appointment, you can check details of all symptom-free testing sites, test pick-up locations and opening times on NHS.UK.

Please note that home testing kit collection is not available from the St. William’s College testing site.

You can also collect home testing kits from a number of community venues throughout August and September. See further information about community symptom-free testing events.

Home testing kits can also be collected from local pharmacies. You can find out where to get rapid lateral flow tests on the NHS website.

Home delivery of testing kits is available from the NHS COVID-19 testing website, or by calling 119.

Symptom-free tests should only be used on those who are secondary school or college age or over.

Reporting home test test results

You must report your home test results online, or by telephone. Details are included in your test kit, with step-by-step instructions on exactly what to do.

It is essential you report your home test result, including if it is negative, as it helps the government to understand the prevalence of the virus and also how many people are getting tested.
