The mobile COVID-19 testing unit returns to the London Borough of Barnet from Monday.
COVID-19 Mobile Testing Unit
The unit will be open for tests for attendees in a vehicle and on foot between 10.30am-3.30pm on each day at:
- Brent Cross Shopping Centre, Stadium Road East (off Prince Charles Drive roundabout) – Monday 27 July, and
- Edgware Community Hospital – Thursday 30 July.
All appointments must be booked in advance, either:
- through the NHS website
- or via the national booking website to receive a priority slot if you are an essential worker.
Please note that guidelines for testing specify that individuals should be tested within the first three days of showing symptoms. The test is best taken within five days of symptoms starting. It is therefore vital if you have symptoms that you apply to take a test as soon as possible.
Please be aware that people can arrive at test sites on foot. The portal currently only has an option for drive-through, but this is an issue with the booking portal. You can write anything in the vehicle registration box so those who are attending on foot should just write ‘Unknown’ in the box. If you are intending to attend the site on foot, you should not be using public transport to get there.
