Rapid lateral flow tests: site locations and opening times

Difficulties with the supply of lateral flow device test kits to our mobile test units means that we now have to prioritise the stock we have towards health, care and other key public sector services.

Our pop-up test units will continue to provide on-site lateral flow device tests, without the need for appointments, at locations across the county.

However, for the time being, we will unfortunately no longer be able to hand out home test kits from our vans to members of the public.

If you represent a voluntary or community organisation that is providing essential support to local people and rely on our pop-up service to access Lateral Flow Devices, please speak to a member of staff at one of our pop-up sites who will seek to help you.

Current timetable and locations (January 2022)

Locations can also be viewed on the NHS map but please check opening times carefully.

We have been working with the NHS to offer coronavirus vaccinations on some of our schedules.

In the meantime, we can confirm the following routes, which will be for community testing only.

Access to home test kits can be obtained from your local pharmacy or via the online home delivery service: Order coronavirus (COVID-19) rapid lateral flow tests – GOV.UK (
