A second Regional Testing Centre for Covid-19 has opened in Cheshire and Merseyside.
Based at Liverpool John Lennon Airport the centre began testing residents, with pre-arranged appointments, on Wednesday, June 17.
The drive-through coronavirus testing facility is located in the long stay car park at the airport and is a key part of the Cheshire and Merseyside push to meet the need for further increased testing. It is open seven days a week, from 8am to 8pm.
Anyone experiencing a new, continuous cough, a high temperature, or a loss of or change in their normal sense of smell or taste, should book a test at nhs.uk/coronavirus or by calling 119 to find out if they currently have coronavirus.
NHS staff and those key workers within health and social care settings can also access the site without an appointment. To receive a test without an appointment staff will need to bring an employee photo ID badge, if they don’t have an employee photo ID, they can bring another form of photo ID e.g. passport or driving license and a recent payslip
The site sits alongside the existing network of testing sites being set up around the UK and is the second in the Cheshire and Merseyside region, alongside Haydock Park in Newton-le-Willows.
