COVID19 Testing

  • Only book a test if you have specific symptoms of COVID-19
  • DO NOT phone NHS 111, your GP surgery or visit your Emergency Department, as they have no access to tests
  • Testing centres are not walk-in – you will need an appointment and cannot be tested without one
  • If you can’t get a test immediately or near to you keep trying the website address as more tests are added throughout the course of each day and you will often find that you can book a test quickly by trying again.

For all current guidance and advice on Coronavirus and testing, visit: https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus

Should I get tested?
Anyone showing any of the three key symptoms of coronavirus should be able to be tested. The symptoms are: 

  • a fever
  • a new continuous cough
  • a loss of smell or taste

Update about the new community testing centres opened in Derbyshire.

We now have community testing centres in every district and borough across Derbyshire. Although cases are falling, it’s still vitally important that we continue to do everything we can to stop the spread so that we can all get back to doing the things we love.

1 in 3 people with the virus have no symptoms and could be spreading it without realising so getting a test is an important tool to keep cases down.

It’s a good idea to get tested regularly, particularly if you are unable to work from home and are mixing with colleagues or the public.

Across Derbyshire, community testing is now available at:

Erewash
• West Park Leisure Centre, Wilsthorpe Road, Long Eaton (Opens Wednesday 24 February at noon after which testing will be available 9am to 7pm, seven days a week apart from March 4, 22 and 30)
Derbyshire Dales
• Members Room, County Hall, Matlock (Opens Friday 26 February, 9am to 7pm, seven days a week)
Chesterfield
• Queen’s Park Sports Centre, Boythorpe Road, Chesterfield (9am to 7pm, seven days a week)
North East Derbyshire
• Clay Cross Social Centre, Market Street, Clay Cross (9am to 7pm, seven days a week)

Amber Valley
• William Gregg VC Leisure Centre, Hands Road, Heanor (9am to 7pm weekdays, 9am to 4pm weekends. Closes 24 February with new centre at the Wilmot Street Centre opening from 9am Thursday 25 February, 9am to 7pm, seven days a week)
Bolsover District
• Shirebrook Village Hall, Park Road, Shirebrook and Post Mill Centre, Market Street, South Normanton (9am to 7pm weekdays, 9am to 4pm weekends) These close at 4pm on Sunday 28 February with the new centre opening at Hillstown Village Hall, Nesbit Street, Hills Town, S446LW at 9am on Monday 1 March. It will be open from 9am to 7pm, seven days a week.
South Derbyshire
• Midway Community Centre, Chestnut Ave, Swadlincote (9am to 7pm, seven days a week)

You don’t need to book an appointment and you can find more details about community testing and check waiting times at www.derbyshire.gov.uk/communitytesting

We’d ask people with symptoms not to visit our community testing centres but to ring NHS 119 or book a test online in the normal way at www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test

Community asymptomatic testing along with robust contact tracing has an important role to play in driving infection rates down, but it only works as part of a whole suite of measures including following the guidance around socialising and self-isolation and the roll-out of the vaccine.

Although the government has announced its roadmap out of ‘lockdown’ we know that this relies on people continuing to get tested, staying at home where possible, sticking to social distancing rules, wearing masks and washing their hands. But where people do have to continue to go out to work and for other essential reasons to mix with colleagues and the public, community testing can make these activities safer.
