Anyone requiring information about testing should go to the government website: www.gov.uk/apply-coronavirus-test.
Those who do not have access to or cannot use the internet can call a dedicated phone line, which can be used to order a test if no other options are available. The Coronavirus Testing Call Centre can be contacted on 0300 303 2713 between the hours of 07:00 and 23:00.
Around 98% of all Coronavirus test results are sent automatically to the individual within four days but for any that aren’t, the Call Centre can help individuals to follow up on their results.
Please do not ring 111 to request testing, they cannot help you with this request
