The government have ending free PCR and LFD testing for most people.

See more information, including who can still get a free NHS COVID-19 test and how to order one.

If you are not eligible for a free NHS test but still want to get tested, you can buy a COVID-19 test from some pharmacies and retailers, in person or online. There may be some variation in the cost, but will most likely be around £2 per lateral flow test, with PCR tests costing significantly more.

Please do not call 119, as you will not be able to get a test this way. You cannot order tests from NHS 111 or 999.

See an updated list of accredited private COVID-19 test providers.

If you have symptoms of COVID-19 and cannot get a test, we would recommend that you isolate and minimise your contact with other people.
