There is now symptom free testing available to everyone 16+. These tests are allowed twice a week and you can access them in the following places:
1) Thameside Youth Centre, Staines (where walk-ins are allowed.)
2) Broadway Pharmacy, Staines
3) Hive Pharmacy, Edinburgh Drive, Laleham,
4) Trio Pharmacy , Shepperton
The three pharmacies will also give you a box of the lateral flow tests which you do yourself. If you then test positive, it is best to go and get a PCR Test which is more accurate as you don't want to self-isolate unless absolutely necessary!
These tests should be useful to people wanting to meet up with family and don't want to risk passing on the virus or have it passed on to you.
