COVID-19 Testing update

COVID-19 Testing update

Nationally, the NHS is scaling up our testing capacity even further to 500,000 tests a day by the end of October, expanding the network of testing sites and laboratories as well as investing in new testing technologies. Whilst this scaling up is happening, the service is currently very busy.

We would ask anyone who tries to book a test and is unable to do so, or who is offered a location or time which is not convenient, to please wait a few hours and then try again.

Further information on testing is available here.
