Update on Covid-19 Testing


We have the Military ‘pop-up’ Testing Unit (MTU) making a welcome return to Robin Park on Friday Saturday, Sunday (and probably Monday) 12th to 15th June.

Taking into account some negative experience re the ability of the national portal to offer Robin Park as a venue in May, we are factoring in potential portal failure and giving alternatives up front.

The national portal link to book is:  https://www.gov.uk/apply-coronavirus-test-essential-workers People should identify themselves as essential workers and click social care in the drop down box.

Should Robin Park fail to appear as a venue they should contact me by email [email protected]  or by text 07806407609 with the first name, last name car registration and mobile number or Andrew Sharrock by text on 07909930046 giving the same information. Unsurprisingly, Andrew has built a really good pragmatic relationship with the military and they are willing to take referrals directly from us on the day, so we are going to take advantage of that fact. We may have to change our numbers after Monday, but we are willing to take the risk

Please note that Robin Park MTU is a drive thru site. People cannot attend on foot or by taxi

Thanks to your help last time we managed to achieve 791 tests over 3 days instead of the expected 300. If you need any further info please let me know, and… thanks very much in advance.
