Covid testing site to open in Preston Park

A new Local Coronavirus Testing Site is opening in Preston Park. It will be fully operational from 20 December. 

This is the third Local Testing Site in Brighton & Hove. The other two are in East Brighton and Portslade.

In addition, mobile testing units are sometimes used at different sites in the city. There is also a large drive-through testing site at Plumpton Racecourse.

All tests must be booked here or by phoning 119.

If you have any of the following symptoms you must get a test and self-isolate immediately:

  • a high temperature
  • a new, continuous cough
  • a loss of, or change to, your sense of smell or taste.

Thank you to everyone for playing your part. Following the guidance is the best way to reduce the risk of passing on Covid-19 to others.

Please continue to wash your hands regularly, wear face coverings if you can, and keep your distance from those outside your household or bubble.

The test sites are run by private contractors on behalf of the Department of Health as part of the national Covid-19 testing programme.
