Coronavirus Testing in Hinckley 13th - 15th May

There will be a mobile testing facility in Hinckley on 13th, 14th and 15th May 2020.

Follow the link below to book if you are eligible.

You can apply for a test if you are:

  • an essential worker with coronavirus symptoms
  • aged 65 or over with coronavirus symptoms
  • someone who cannot work from home and has coronavirus symptoms (for example, construction workers or delivery drivers)

Anyone with coronavirus symptoms can apply if they live with an essential worker, a person aged 65 or over, or someone who travels to work.

You can also apply for a test if you have a clinical referral from NHS 111 online.

Coronavirus symptoms are a high temperature or a new, continuous cough.

When to apply for a test

You need to get the test done in the first 5 days of having symptoms. It's best to apply for the test in the first 3 days as it may take 1 or 2 days to arrange.

You might not get a test if you apply - it depends how many tests are available in your area.

Frontline essential workers such as NHS staff will be given priority.
