Help stop the spread of COVID-19 in Medway: Symptom-free testing is now available for everyone.

Anyone who lives or works in Medway can now book a coronavirus (COVID-19) symptom-free test. This is especially important if you’re leaving your home for an essential reason including:

  • leaving home for work
  • to go food shopping
  • for exercise
  • for a medical reason.

Since the start of the current national lockdown, we have prioritised testing (at our 5 test sites) for anyone who cannot work from home. With slots available across our testing sites, we’re now able to expand availability to all residents and individuals working in Medway. 

Booking slots are available of a first come, first served basis. 

About symptom-free testing

Through this new type of testing we aim to identify people who do not have coronavirus symptoms but who are infectious and could spread the virus to others unknowingly. This will provide a more accurate picture of cases in Medway and will help reduce the spread of the virus locally.

Our current symptom-free testing centres are in Chatham, Chattenden, Gillingham, Rainham and Rochester.

Testing centres are open from 9am to 7pm, Monday to Sunday. Medway Park is open Monday to Friday, 9am to 7pm.
