Get tested if you have symptoms

If you have symptoms of coronavirus, no matter how mild, it is important that you get a test.

Get tested if you don’t have symptoms – book a rapid test

From Friday 9 April everyone in the UK is being encouraged to get tested for Covid-19 twice a week.
As national restrictions ease, rapid testing is a critical way to reduce the spread and keep us on track with the roadmap out of lockdown.

Rapid Covid-19 tests are free and provide results within 30 minutes.

You must arrive at the test site wearing a face covering, unless you’re exempt or have a reasonable excuse (according to the latest government guidelines). If you’re exempt, you should be permitted to enter the test site and perform the test.

Pharmacy collect

You can collect a rapid test kit, without an appointment, from many Hackney pharmacies – find your nearest on our map:
