Book a symptom-free COVID-19 test
As a result of all the different ways to access testing, and a reduction in the number of people choosing to get tested, a decision has been made to reduce the number of sites offering symptomless testing across Kent with most closing from the 30th June, including the Tunbridge Wells site and other west Kent sites at The Hop Farm and in Sevenoaks.
Tests are available at centres in Maidstone and Ashford only.
Who can book a test
Anyone who does not have symptoms and lives or works in Kent can book a test
Before you book
You must book a separate appointment for each member of your household that needs a test.
To book a test you must:
- confirm you're eligible
- confirm you do not have coronavirus symptoms
- provide your name, date of birth, postcode, and contact details
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 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.
