This is the second mobile sites to come to Amersham recently and follow others in High Wycombe and Aylesbury this month.

They are in addition to other local and regional coronavirus testing sites, which are still available for residents in Buckinghamshire to use.

Anyone aged five and over who has coronavirus symptoms (a high temperature; a new, continuous cough; a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste) is now eligible to be tested. However, tests for essential workers, such as frontline healthcare staff, are being prioritised over tests for the wider public at this time.

To arrange a test, go to and click on the appropriate link for you within the ‘testing’ section of information.

The booking process is slightly different for members of the public to that for essential workers.

Gareth Williams, cabinet member for public health and community engagement at Buckinghamshire Council, said: “This is great news and an important step as we work together to stop the spread of coronavirus and help Bucks’ communities.”

Dr Raj Bajwa, GP and Chair of NHS Buckinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “Testing is essential to help keep NHS services running smoothly during this outbreak, and to help vulnerable people stay as safe as possible from coronavirus infection.

"These mobile sites will offer a great boost to our testing capabilities in Buckinghamshire, so we hope they will be well-used by those that need them.”
