Did you know that around one in three people, who have coronavirus, don’t have any symptoms, but can still pass the virus to others?

Who should take the test?

If you are regularly going to work or leaving your home for essential trips, you should visit the local community testing centre for a coronavirus test. There are three test centres local to Winnersh Triangle: Shute End test centre, Sindlesham Court test centre & Microsoft Campus test centre.  

This testing centre is for people who do not have coronavirus symptoms, but want peace of mind. By community testing, it will help break the chains of transmission and reduce the spread of the virus in Farnborough.

How do I book a test?

To book your test slot, please visit the links below:

Shute End test centre | Microsoft Campus test centre

Please note, you do not need to book a test in advance at Sindlesham Court. Walk-ins are also being accepted at the Microsoft Campus.

How does the test work?

The test used is a rapid lateral flow test. This involves taking a swab from your nose and throat, using a long thin cotton bud type swab.  You will get the results in about an hour by text message which will confirm your results and what to do next.
