Covid-19 testing

Community Testing Centre

At these sites we are offering PCR and RATS testing.

You can be tested for COVID-19 at your General Practice or at a community based testing centre (CBAC).

You should contact your GP first if you are unwell and they will likely be able to offer you testing. If this is not available you can attend a testing centre instead. You will only be tested for COVID-19 at a testing centre – they won’t do a health assessment, so it is important that if you are unwell and need to see a doctor or be assessed, you should contact your GP team as normal.

You do not need a referral to attend a CBAC testing centre. You can drive-up or walk-in. Testing is free, unless you require a test for travel overseas
