Community Lateral Flow Asymptomatic Testing

Those who cannot work from home should be getting regular coronavirus tests.

If you cannot work from home, for example:

  • NHS staff
  • care workers
  • supermarket staff
  • delivery drivers
  • school staff

You can book a test at our Lateral Flow Asymptomatic Testing hub at:

  • Lancaster Way Community Centre, Buckshaw Village, PR7 7GA

You will need to book before attending. Please call 01772 625 688 Monday to Friday 9am till 5pm or by email to contact.tracing@southribble.gov.uk  

The aim of the hub is to help keep essential workforces safe by identifying asymptomatic cases that could be unknowingly spreading the virus within their work setting or to the general public.

It is estimated that around 1 in 3 people might display no symptoms, but are still infectious. It is vital to break these chains of transmission and bring infection rates down.

Please note the testing sites are not open for the general public and is available for frontline workers only. We are utilising the testing capacity to ensure our approach is targeted and prioritised.

 

Helping businesses with regular testing for their workforce

We aim to support businesses and services in providing the facility for frontline workers to undergo periodic rapid testing until that business or service can establish its own testing regime. 

If you do not already have a testing regime in place you can book a test at Lancaster Way Community Centre by calling 01772 625688 or by email to contact.tracing@southribble.gov.uk and a member of the team will look to make this booking with you. For larger employers where possible we could look to block out time slots for your businesses if it is not convenient to book individual appointments.

Lancashire County Council is also offering businesses the opportunity to register an interest in implementing a testing regime within the workplace.
