Other testing sites are still available for residents in Buckinghamshire, you can see a full list of all the testing stations and make a booking here.

Tests must be booked and are not available on a ‘drop-in’ basis. Once your booking is confirmed further details of the testing site will be provided.

Gareth Williams, Cabinet Member for Public Health and Community Engagement at Buckinghamshire Council, said:

“Testing is now available to anyone over the age of 5 who has coronavirus symptoms, not just essential workers – although they continue to be prioritised for obvious reasons.

"This is great news and an important step as we work together to stop the spread of coronavirus and help Buckinghamshire’s communities move carefully forward. If you think you need a test, please book a slot.”

Dr Raj Bajwa, GP and Chair of NHS Buckinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group, said:

“Testing is essential to help keep NHS services running smoothly during this outbreak, and to help vulnerable people stay as safe as possible from coronavirus infection.

"These mobile sites will offer a great boost to our testing capabilities in Buckinghamshire, so we hope they will be well-used by those that need them.”
