Three new Asymptomatic Testing Centres, for people who are not displaying Covid-19 symptoms, will open in Bulwell, Strelley and Top Valley.

The three new testing centres will open in the car parks at the following sites:

Buzz Bingo on Gala Way, Top Valley, will be open on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10am until 5.30pm.

Strelley Social Club, Helston Drive, Strelley, will be open on Monday and Thursdays from 10am until 5.30pm (please note this site will be closed on the Bank Holiday Monday.)

Ken Martin Leisure Centre, Hucknall Lane, Bulwell, will be open on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday (8am-6pm) Wednesday 7am-5pm and Saturday (8.30am-1pm)

The new sites will extend Nottingham City Council’s offer to residents after the opening of the asymptomatic testing centres at Djanolgy Community Leisure Centre, The Portland Centre (The Meadows) and Clifton Community Centre.

The centres will be run by Nottingham City Council and will encourage people without symptoms of Covid-19 (asymptomatic) to drop in and get a free rapid Covid-19 test.

Cllr Sally Longford, Deputy Leader of Nottingham City Council, said: “I’m pleased that we are opening more Asymptomatic Testing centres so that more of our residents can easily access a free Covid test. With results in an hour, asymptomatic testing offers reassurance and peace of mind. The additional mobile testing facilities in Bulwell, Strelley and Top Valley will be a big help as we continue to tackle the virus and monitor for outbreaks of new variants.

“The aim of the asymptomatic testing is to pick up more infections before people become symptomatic and support them to isolate earlier. People will not need to display any symptoms to access this test and the results of positive or negative for Covid-19 can be given in under an hour. The offer will be for each person to access a test at least once a week.”
