Book a symptom-free COVID-19 test

Rapid-result coronavirus (COVID-19) testing for people who don’t have symptoms will help to find those who may be unknowingly spreading the virus in the community.

You can now book an appointment at one of 14 sites across Kent. These sites are in addition to the regional and local testing sites for people who have symptoms.

The test site location for Tunbridge Wells is:

The Camden Centre
Market Square
Royal Victoria Place
Tunbridge Wells

This testing centre is open between 9am and 7pm.

People in West Kent can continue to be able to access testing at the Hop Farm in Paddock Wood and at Cranbrook’s Vestry Hall.

Anyone who does not have symptoms and lives or works in Kent can book a test.

Results and next steps

You will have a lateral flow swab test and will get your result within half an hour. If the result is positive, you will be told to self-isolate, follow the national guidance and you will be instructed to have a PCR test to confirm your positive result. If the result is negative, you must still continue to observe social distancing guidelines, wear a mask in public and regularly wash your hands.

Please keep following the rules and limit your social interactions. It's important to self-isolate, not only after receiving a positive test result but also while you wait for the results.
