Coronavirus Testing

Walk-in sites can still accept walk-ins without an appointment, but only if you are displaying symptoms.

Free testing is available at Wellingborough’s test centre, which is situated at Market Square.

The app will help the NHS understand if the virus is spreading in a particular area, and so local authorities can respond quickly to
