COVID Test Centre closures

Free COVID-19 testing for people without symptoms has now ended in line with the Government's Living with COVID scheme.

You may still be able to get free rapid lateral flow tests if you work for the NHS or in social care, are going into hospital, or you’re at high risk of getting seriously ill from COVID-19.

If you believe you may be in a group that can still access testing - guidance is available at

People can book a PCR test by visiting or calling 119.

Sefton Council is now working to help the people who have been working at its Test Centres through redeployment into other roles.

The Government has informed Sefton Council that it could take up to six months to dismantle PCR test centres after they close.
