Rapid Testing Centres

Rapid Test Centres make it easy for people to get tested or collect a home test kit. There is no need to book a test slot, just drop in to one of our test centres at a time that is convenient to you.

If you live or work closer to a Rapid Test Centre in an area that borders with Buckinghamshire, such as Slough or Milton Keynes, you can use those centres.

Details of all test centres can be found on the NHS COVID-19 Test and Vaccination Site Finder.

Collect a home test kit

Home test kits can be collected from our rapid testing sites during their opening hours. The kits can now also be collected from our Council Access Points. Please note that this does not include our Denham office as this site remains closed.

Mobile and pop-up

We operate 2 mobile Rapid Test vans where members of the public can have an assisted test with results in 30 minutes and also collect home test kits for regular at-home testing. The Rapid Testing vans will be visiting locations across the county, and we will keep you updated via our social media pages.

Operating times for the mobile service and pop-up sites will be flexible depending on the venue and demand.

Before you visit

  1. The registration process will be quicker and easier if you create an NHS account
  2. Bring your mask and your mobile phone (if you have one) with you to the test site

At the test site

There will be staff available at the test site to help and support you with everything you need to do for your test.

  • You will need to register your test online by going to GOV.UK: register a coronavirus test or by scanning the QR code at the test centre. You will need the test site ID which will be displayed at the test site
  • You will be given a registration card and barcode by a member of staff to complete your registration
  • You will be directed to a booth where you will need to swab your throat and nose.
  • The rapid test will take about 10 minutes. You should get the results within 45 minutes.
  • The coronavirus testing account lets you save your details, so you do not need to enter them each time you register a test.

If you do not have a mobile phone a member of staff will be able to register your test for you and you will be able to wait for your result.
