Covid-19: Getting a test in Nottingham
A Message from City Council Leader, Cllr David Mellen:
Community testing is a key way we can control and maintain local outbreaks which in turn enables people in the city to carry on with their day-to-day activities, to go to work and for schools to remain open.
Nottingham has both a fixed testing drive-through site and a mobile testing unit that visits different locations at different times. The fixed site is at the Motorpoint Arena car park behind the BBC building in Nottingham.
The mobile testing unit will be at the following locations:
Only try to book a test if you are actually experiencing symptoms or have been advised to by a health professional. You must book in for a test before attending and as locations are drive-through only you either need to drive or to be driven to a site. You can book in for a test at a mobile testing site by calling 119 or via the online government portal.
Tests slots are released throughout the day and therefore if there is nothing available when you first look please keep trying. If you have symptoms you must stay at home until you can get a test and only leave home to take the test. The symptoms to look out for are:
You will receive your test result via text or email within 72 hours. If your test is positive, you must self-isolate immediately. For more information on receiving your result, visit the NHS website.
