Testing without symptoms

If you are displaying at least one of the three coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms - a high temperature, a new, continuous cough or you’ve lost your sense of smell or taste or it’s changed - please get a free NHS coronavirus test.


Everyone is now entitled to get tested without showing symptoms.

This is important to help keep coronavirus cases down and our communities safe. Regular testing for people with no symptoms will help to find positive cases earlier and break chains of transmission.

The new tests are called 'rapid lateral flow tests'. Your results will be texted to you later that day.

There are lots of options for accessing home test kits.

Visit the GOV.UK website and order them straight to your home.

Call NHS on 119 any day between 7am to 11pm, calls are free.

Usually delivered within, 2 days by Royal Mail.

Your local pharmacy may be stocking the home tests for you to collect. Search for your local pharmacy.
