Covid-19 testing

Please note that it is no longer possible to attend either the Regional Test Site at Hempsted, Gloucester or any of our mobile testing site locations without having previously booked a test via the government portal, or by calling 119.  Please only book a test if you are showing Covid symptoms and if in any doubt go through 119 who can assess your case and if needed allocate you a place on the most appropriate testing route. Testing is run by the Department for Health and Social Care, so any comments or concerns you have should be sent to them so they can look into them.

UPDATE: Problems contacting us by email

We are currently not able to receive emails. Our IT provider has been subject to a cyber attack. From the checks they have carried out so far, they do not believe our systems have been affected, however as a precautionary measure we have blocked all external emails from reaching our servers, until they can assure us that this is the case.

Emails from us are not affected by the block that is in place, so you should still receive contact from us in this way, although it may take slightly longer than normal. 

We will let you know when these issues are resolved.

If you need us urgently, please call us.

Testing Unit locations

An important part of minimising and managing any future spread of Covid-19 is the speed at which people can be tested and isolation measures put in place, should an outbreak occur.

The mobile testing unit is now available at other locations across the county. Please see this week's locations below.

Anyone with symptoms of Covid-19 can have a test.

Please do not contact the site owners!
To book a test or get more information:

go to the NHS website
or call 119

If you don't have an appointment you will not get a test!
Please only ask for a test if you have symptoms.
