Book a free Rapid COVID test

There is currently a very high Coronavirus (COVID) infection rate in the Harrow area with some residents having COVID without knowing it, because they do not show or feel any symptoms.

To help locate the infected residents and break the chain of infection we’ve introduced Rapid COVID testing for people who are not showing any symptoms of COVID.

Also known as a Lateral Flow Test (LFT), Rapid COVID testing gives a positive or negative COVID result in approximately 30-40 minutes.
