Regular rapid coronavirus (COVID-19) tests if you do not have symptoms


Streatham Pharmacy is proud to partner with the NHS to offer the community FREE Lateral Flow Covid Test kits. 


You can get regular rapid tests if you do not have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19).


Why you should get tested regularly


About 1 in 3 people with COVID-19 do not have symptoms but can still infect others.

Getting tested regularly is the only way to know if you have the virus. If people test positive and self-isolate, it helps stop the virus spreading.



About rapid tests


The test for people without symptoms of COVID-19 is called a rapid lateral flow test.

This usually involves rubbing a long cotton bud (swab) over your tonsils (or where they would have been) and inside your nose.

The tests can give you a result in 30 minutes.


If you test positive, you and anyone you live with will need to self-isolate.


Who can get regular rapid tests


These kits are available to those that reside in the UK and wish to test themselves on a weekly basis.


Anyone who does not have symptoms can now get regular rapid lateral flow tests to check for COVID-19.


REMEMBER: If you have symptoms of COVID-19, you need a different test called a PCR test. 


Get a PCR test if you have symptoms of COVID-19 on GOV.UK. 


Do not visit the pharmacy if you have symptoms or suspect you may be infected. 



You can now collect test kits from Streatham Pharmacy.


If you do tests at home, you'll need to report your results online or on the phone.




No appointment needed.
