Rapid test site opens in Hackney

Hackney’s first rapid test centre has now opened in Stoke Newington, giving residents without symptoms of coronavirus the opportunity to get a free test - with a result on the same day.

The centre is open daily in Stoke Newington. Tests are free.

Demand for this test centre is extremely high, and you must book an appointment in advance. Book an appointment here. Please do not call the coronavirus helpline, as Council staff are prioritising support for residents who are shielding or need crisis support.

You must only use this service if you do not have symptoms of coronavirus. If you do have symptoms, you should book a coronavirus test on the NHS website, through the NHS COVID-19 app or by calling 119, and self-isolate immediately.

It is great to have extra testing capacity and I would encourage residents who don’t have symptoms of coronavirus to take up this offer of rapid testing.
