No symptoms COVID-19 testing (SMART)
“SMART” testing refers to Systematic, Meaningful, Asymptomatic, Repeated Testing using rapid tests – called lateral flow tests – the same tests that have been used in the successful Liverpool pilot, which has seen rates of infection dramatically reducing across the city.
Getting a test if you
do not have COVID-19 symptoms
Whole-community smart testing aims to protect those at highest risk and find asymptomatic cases (people without any symptoms).
This will help prevent and reduce transmission in the community. The more people we can test, the better we can fight the virus in our local area.

How to get a test:
- No appointment is required.
- You can visit either of the centres below during the opening times, but please remember, these sites are only for people who do not have COVID-19 symptoms.
- The test involves a swab from the nose and mouth, which is done by you. The results are usually available from 30 minutes to two hours later.
