Covid-19 testing

Covid continues to spread across Hammersmith & Fulham. We can all help stop it by getting a test. This helps identify cases and stop the spread in the home and in the community.

One in three infected people show no symptoms. To keep peace of mind, free coronavirus tests can be booked for everyone in H&F aged 12 and older. 

If you are aware of anyone seeking a test without online access or do not have an email address, please call our CAN helpline on 0800 145 6095 for assistance with booking.

There are two types of test so please make sure you select the option below that applies to you:

Covid-19 tests for people who don't have symptoms

If you’re not experiencing symptoms, you can book a free rapid test (also known as a Lateral Flow Test) with results available in 45 to 60 minutes. Some mobile testing units (MTUs) are booking only, please see below to check whether you need to book before you go.

Book a rapid Covid-19 test

You are welcome to book repeat tests. A false negative can happen if you test soon after you have picked up the virus. For this reason repeated testing is more reliable than a one off test. To ensure greater reliability, you are welcome to book repeat tests provided these are 3 to 5 days apart.

Covid-19 tests for people who do have symptoms

If you have symptoms and want to get tested, you can book a test for NHS testing centres including Olympia in H&F.

Once you have booked your test you can attend any test centre. For example, even if it says Brent, you can still get tested at the H&F testing site.

Book a PCR Covid-19 test on GOV.UK

Other ways to book a test if you have symptoms

You can also book a test through the NHS Covid-19 app or over the phone by calling 119. The phone service runs from 7am to 11pm. 

Visit NHS: Coronavirus (Covid-19) for more information about testing.
