Get tested

End of Testing

As part of the Government’s Living with Covid plan, free universal testing (which includes lateral flow tests and PCR), has now ended.

Free lateral flow tests are no longer available in local libraries or pharmacies and the PCR testing sites in the city have now closed. 

A few groups will still be entitled to free testing. The Government will set out further details on which groups will be eligible in the next few days. Information will be available on the NHS testing webpage.

Moving forward, Lateral Flow Tests are available to purchase in high street shops and pharmacies.
