Coronavirus testing for key workers in Norfolk and Waveney
A new coronavirus testing site is being introduced from this Saturday, at the Postwick Park and Ride site on the eastern edge of Norwich.
It is part of a network of “regional” testing sites across East Anglia, which complements local testing sites across Norfolk and Waveney.
Key workers and their household members with coronavirus symptoms (Covid-19) can ask for a test to see if they have the virus by choosing any of the options now available:
Local testing service based at hospitals for key workers
The three local sites for key workers in Norfolk and Waveney are at:
- James Paget University Hospital
- The Centrum Centre near Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital
- Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King’s Lynn
The service is by appointment only. Appointments for these locations cannot be booked using national booking routes, they must be booked using our local system:
- NHS acute hospital staff: Use your organisation’s existing booking arrangements.
Key workers and members of the public with symptoms of coronavirus can be tested at this location. Appointments must be booked via the national booking system for key workers and their household members and via the NHS website for members of the public. Further guidance is available here.
You'll be able to choose where to be tested, either at a mobile testing unit close to you if it is available, or any of the permanent testing centres at Norwich, Ipswich, Peterborough and Stansted. You can aso ask for a home testing kit.
When booking a test via the national routes, available appointments will be shown at all regional testing centres across the country. If a regional testing centre local to you is not shown, this means all appointments are booked for the day, and you should try the next day to book an appointment.
