Bin lorry driver strike action

Bin lorry drivers are on strike over a number of days. We apologise but this is out of our control. We are continuing to try and find a resolution that will get drivers back on the streets.

Test Site

Symptomatic Testing

Moat Street Car Park – drive through testing centre

9am - 3pm every day

CBS (Ricoh) Arena, Car Park C - drive through testing centre. (Car Park C is located adjacent to the stadium, and can be accessed from Jimmy Hill Way)

9am - 3pm every day

This mobile testing unit will not be operational on match days.

The NHS website for booking tests will automatically reflect this.

Broad Street - walk in testing centre

8am - 6pm every day          

Whitefriars – walk in testing centre 8am - 6pm every day          

PCR appointments are released by the Department of Health and Social Care for all sites in one go at 3pm for the following day. If you try to book a slot between 12pm and 3pm you may struggle to find an appointment. If you try after 3pm, you should find an available appointment.

Drive through testing centres at Moat Street Car Park and CBS Arena can get very busy and it can be difficult to get a slot at times, so consider selecting the walk-in sites as an option instead, as it is often easier to get a walk-in appointment. There is street parking near both Broad Street and Whitefriars walk-in sites which you can use.
