Accessing A Test
Since the first week, it appears to have been increasingly difficult for parents to access testing – this is a problem nationally. We are all going to have to be patient until the availability of tests improves to meet the demand.
The following link can be used to access a test www.nhs.uk/coronavirus.
Prebend Street, in Bedford, has a walk-in testing site. Appointments are required in order for a test to be accessed – these can be booked by calling 0300 303 2713.
