Symptom-free coronavirus testing

What to expect when getting tested

If you have booked in advance, you must arrive at the time of your appointment (not before) - please do not attend if you have any COVID-19 symptoms.

If you're attending without an appointment, check the COVID-19 testing site opening times before you travel.

Your test will take approximately 30 minutes.

You must bring:

  • a mobile device to scan a QR code on the test kit (devices will be available if you don’t have your own)
  • a face covering (unless you're exempt)

When you receive your test kit, it will have a QR code for you to scan.

You'll be directed to an individual test area to complete a self-administered swab test; guidance will be provided, and trained staff will be available to advise you, if needed.

You'll deposit your swab test at the processing station.
