We offer a range of testing options, including drive-through centres, home delivery and mobile testing units, as well as satellite testing for specific groups such as care homes. We are continually working to improve and widen access to testing and are working with local areas to increase the avenues through which all people and, in particular vulnerable groups, can be tested.
