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.
