Coronavirus testing in Pendle

Booking a test for a Mobile Testing Unit or Local Testing Station

Covid-19 tests can only be booked on the national online booking portal or by calling 119 if you do not have access to the internet. You cannot book a test in any other way.

If you can't book a test online, or you are offered a location or time that isn't convenient, wait a few hours and then try again. Tests are available each day.
