Community Testing

We want to keep you informed about the community testing programme in your area and hope that you can help to spread the word through your communication channels and other contacts please.

Erewash residents are being asked to come for a coronavirus test as part of the county council's targeted community testing programme. Our testing centre is at The West Park Leisure Centre on Wilsthorpe Road in Long Eaton NG10 4AA. The opening times are 9am to 7pm every day. However, there will be no community testing available on March 4, 22 and 30 as the centre hosts regular blood donor sessions which will be going ahead as normal on these days.

Alternatively, if Heanor is more convenient for Erewash residents, they can use our centre there. It has recently moved to a new location at the Wilmot Street Centre, Wilmot Street, Heanor DE75 7EF and is also open 9am to 7pm daily.

One in three people who have the virus don't have any symptoms, so everyone is invited to come along and get a test to protect their family.

The testing is NOT for people with actual coronavirus symptoms - they should book a test – see here: Get a free NHS test to check if you have coronavirus - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)

You can find out more about the testing by visiting www.derbyshire.gov.uk/communitytesting
