Temporary Covid-19 Mobile Testing Centre – Clackmannanshire
A mobile testing centre for Covid-19 will be at Sauchie Hall for three days in response to the growing number of positive test cases in Clackmannanshire.
The testing centre is located in the hall on Tuesday 26th, Wednesday 27th and Thursday 28th January.
- Book your appointment beforehand – see details below
- It is a walk though centre and anyone attending should wear a face covering and observe the rules on physical distancing by staying at least 2 metres apart
- All testing is self swab. No assisted testing is available. Testing is for all ages
Anyone who lives or works in Clackmannanshire can arrange to get tested, whether they have symptoms or not, via the GOV.UK website or by calling 0300 303 2713.
Dr Graham Foster, Director of Public Health, NHS Forth Valley, said:
“The rate of positive cases across Clackmannanshire remains concerningly high and we have not yet seen the numbers starting to stabilise or decline the way we are in some other parts of Forth Valley.
“I would therefore encourage local people across Clackmannanshire to take this opportunity to get tested even if they currently feel well as some people can have Covid-19 without displaying any of the common symptoms.”
Making an appointment
Anyone booking online who does not have any symptoms should select the option ‘My local council or health protection team has asked me (or someone I live with) to get a test, even though I do not have symptoms’ when asked why they are requesting a test.
Appointments will only be released at around 6pm each evening for the following morning and in the morning at around 10am for appointments. Tests are available up until 6pm.
People are asked not to turn up at the test centre without booking an appointment in advance to help avoid overcrowding and keep people safe.
