A mobile coronavirus testing unit is returning to High Wycombe for the third time today (June 2).

Another testing unit will also go back to Amersham for up to two days from Friday, June 5.

These are the third mobile sites to come to both High Wycombe and Amersham in recent weeks and follow others in Buckingham and Aylesbury last month.

The location of the testing sites are not being revealed until during the booking process.

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.

Children under five who have symptoms and live in the same household as an essential worker are also now eligible for testing.

To arrange a test, go to www.gov.uk/coronavirus 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.

Tests must be booked and are not available on a ‘drop-in’ basis.

You can also book a test at a different site via the website.

If the mobile testing sites are fully booked then you will be offered testing at the next closest location.

Gareth Williams, cabinet member for public health and community engagement at Buckinghamshire Council, said: “Testing is now available to anyone over the age of five who has coronavirus symptoms, not just essential workers – although they continue to be prioritised for obvious reasons.

"This is great news and a vital step as aspects of lockdown ease and we work together to stop the spread of coronavirus. If you think you need a test, please book a slot.”

Dr Raj Bajwa, GP and Chair of NHS Buckinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group, added: “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.”
