Mobile testing units will return to Knighton and Hay-on-Wye from Wednesday 21 July until Sunday 8 August for residents in the towns and wider area to have easy access to coronavirus testing.
Testing for people with symptoms
As well as the mobile testing units in Knighton and Hay-on-Wye, residents can also access tests:
Appointments in Knighton, Hay-on-Wye, Newtown and Brecon can be booked through the UK Government national booking portal, either online at www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test, by phone on 119, or 18001 119 for people with hearing or speech difficulties. This is also the way to request a home testing kit.
As well as testing centres for people with symptoms, testing using Lateral Flow Devices is also available across the county. Lateral Flow Devices can be collected from libraries and pharmacies across Powys. More details are available by visiting pthb.nhs.wales/find/ttp and clicking on “I do not have symptoms”. Please remember that you should only visit these collections to collect lateral flow devices if you do not have symptoms.
With high numbers of cases continuing in Newtown, the walk-in testing centre for people without symptoms remains open. You can drop in to the testing centre Park Street (opposite Newtown Medical Practice) any time between 11.30am and 5.30pm. Our team will help you with your test, send you the result within an hour, and also give you testing kits to take away.
There is no need to book to collect Lateral Flow Devices or to attend the walk-in testing centre in Newtown.
