January Covid-testing facilities in Sefton

Testing for people with symptoms 

Across January, drive-through Mobile Testing Units will operate once again throughout Sefton. These sites are for those with symptoms – a new persistent cough, a high temperature or a loss of sense of taste or smell – and can be booked by calling 119 or visiting www.nhs.uk/coronavirus.

Planned dates and sites may be subject to change if testing is required in other locations:

Opening times

  • Sunday 10 January – Ainsdale
  • Monday 11 January – NO MOBILE TESTING
  • Tuesday 12 January – Litherland

  • Tuesday 19 January – Ainsdale

In addition, local walk-through test centres are open every day from 8am to 8pm, providing easy access to COVID-19 tests for people who do not have access to a car and for those who have symptoms and should not travel by public transport.

The four local test centres are located at:

  • Bootle Town Hall, L20 7AA
  • Crosby Library Car Park, Haigh Road, L22 OLQ
  • Netherton Activity Centre, Glovers Land, L30 3TL
  • Southport Town Hall, PR8 1DA

Those with symptoms seeking tests, need to book ahead of going to either the walk-through or drive-through sites. It’s quick and easy to book by calling 119 or going online at www.nhs.uk/coronavirus.

Testing for people not displaying any symptoms

Targeted, SMART COVID-19 testing for residents who DON’T have COVID-19 symptoms is now taking place at:

  • Splash World in Southport

Each site is open from 9am to 6pm.  The SMART test sites are walk through only.
