Testing in Redbridge

For those with COVID-19 symptoms

UPDATE: The Government is ending free universal Lateral Flow and PCR Covid-19 testing from Friday 1 April. As a result, Redbridge Lateral Flow Test sites and PCR sites will be closed permanently from Thursday 31 March 2022.

Some free testing remains available to specific 'at risk' groups & those working in certain frontline care roles.

In England, you can order tests if:

  • you have a health condition which means you're eligible for COVID-19 treatments (opens in new tab)
  • your doctor or healthcare professional has told you to get a test because you're being admitted to hospital
  • you've spoken to your GP or healthcare professional recently and they asked you to get a test

If any of the above apply to you you can order Lateral Flow tests here:

You can also order tests if:

  • you work for the NHS in a patient-facing role, and you're taking part in the NHS staff testing programme
  • you work for an NHS-commissioned independent healthcare provider in a patient-facing role looking after NHS patients
  • you work for the NHS and you have one of the 3 main COVID-19 symptoms (opens in new tab) or you have recently tested positive and need to take a test to return to work
  • you work in the adult social care sector as a personal assistant, a Shared Lives carer, a Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspector or a social worker

If you are not eligible for free tests, test kits can be bought from retailers.
