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  

Booking a test

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 in the following areas:

  • Amber Valley
  • Bolsover District
  • Chesterfield
  • Derbyshire Dales
  • Erewash
  • High Peak 
  • North East Derbyshire
  • South Derbyshire

You don’t need to book an appointment and you can find more details about community testing and check current dates and 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.
