Covid-19 testing centre set up at our offices in Ilkeston

In partnership with Derbyshire County Council, we have arranged for a pop-up community testing centre to be set up in the car park of our offices in Ilkeston.

The new centre will be open from Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm until Friday 23 April. No booking is required – just turn up at a time that suits you.

You can find the testing centre at emh homes, Longfield House, Hallam Fields Road, Ilkeston DE7 4BR.

The service offers lateral flow tests to people living and working around Ilkeston. The aim is for them to have a weekly test to try to stem the spread of the virus in the community from asymptomatic people. One in three people with Covid-19 do not display any symptoms, which means they could be passing on the virus to anyone they meet without knowing.

The testing will identify people with Covid-19, enable support for those who have to self-isolate, and help further drive down infection rates in the area.

Community testing is not for those who have Covid-19 symptoms. If you are experiencing symptoms, please book a test in the normal way.
