Coronavirus testing locally

Mobile coronavirus test centres are being set up for Sunday 31 May and Monday 1 June, from 10.30 am-3.30 pm at the Grasshoppers’ Rugby Club, Syon Lane, Osterley, Isleworth, TW7 5PN.

There will be both walk-in and drive-through appointments which will be available to book on Friday 29 May.

Testing for key workers, volunteers and their families:

Anyone who is showing symptoms of Covid 19 who are also key workers, any volunteers working in key worker roles, those who cannot work from home and, people over 65, and members of their households are able to get tested for coronavirus and can book an appointment via the self-referral portal. Tests should be taken within five days of developing symptoms as this is when the test is most accurate.

Testing for members of the public

The Government has now extended its testing programme to include any members of the public aged five and over. Please register via the NHS website.

Once you register and book your appointment via the self-referral portal or NHS website you will receive a 16-digit code text message. At the testing site, you will need to show your 16-digit code text message to staff members as confirmation for the test.

If you have any difficulty or any questions about testing, email publichealth@hounslow.gov.uk
