Message from Tandridge District Council:
Free Covid-19 testing available in Oxted – Appointment Required
Residents with Covid-19 symptoms will soon be able to get tested for free, when the Covid-19 mobile testing unit comes to Oxted from 17 to 23 December.
The testing unit will be in the car park behind the Oxted Health Centre and Oxted Library. Anyone not familiar with the area can find it by searching for the postcode RH8 0BQ.
To get a free test, you must have one of the following symptoms:
- A high temperature.
- A new, continuous cough.
- A loss or change in your sense of smell or taste.
Anyone who has been asked to get tested by a local council or is taking part in a government pilot project is also eligible to get a free test and you can also get a test for someone you live with if they have symptoms.
Tests can be booked at www.nhs.uk/ask-for-a-coronavirus-test. Please don’t visit the testing unit unless you have booked an appointment.
