There are two community testing sites in Preston.
Due to demand we can only provide tests to Preston residents affected by enhanced local restrictions.
You can check whether this affects you by visiting our residencies affected by area of intervention measures.
We are also unable to provide tests to children under the age of 5 at our community testing sites.
Please contact NHS 119 to book a test or visit GOV.UK - coronavirus test
Both of Preston's community testing sites are available 5 days a week from Saturday until Wednesday, 10am-3pm.
Please note the Issa Medical Centre site is now closed
If you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 or feel unwell please get tested as soon as possible.
Where practical please avoid the use of taxis or public transport to attend a testing site.
But you can get a test regardless of symptoms at Preston's community testing sites.
In order to demonstrate a low percentage of positive tests, we need more people to be tested.
Increased testing helps to identify people who may have the virus, but display no symptoms. This in turn will stop the spread of the virus.
Preston's two community test sites operate a drop in service. Demand is high so please be prepared to queue.
If you are ineligible to be tested at Preston's community testing sites you can find out how to book a test at the nearest regional testing facility here GOV.UK - coronavirus test or by calling the NHS Coronavirus testing contact centre on 119.
A drive-through coronavirus testing site is available by appointment only at Walton-le-Dale Park and Ride.
Testing will be carried out on a section of the Park and Ride site, which is based by the Capitol Centre.
This site is not operated by Preston City Council. Please call NHS 119 to book a test here.
