Mobile testing units (MTUs) are located across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire at temporary locations to help increase access to coronavirus testing.
If you have symptoms of coronavirus including a high temperature, a new continuous cough or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste, you should get tested as soon as possible.

Providing there is local availability, you can book in for a test at a mobile testing site, a drive-in or walk through site or for a home testing kit by calling 119 or via the online government portal.
Over the next week, MTUs can be found in the following areas:
Wednesday 23rd, Thursday 24th and Friday 25th September – Mansfield
Thursday 24th, Friday 25th, Saturday 26th, Sunday 27th and Monday 28th September – Rushcliffe
Sunday 27th, Monday 28th, and Tuesday 29th September – Bassetlaw
Tuesday 29th, Wednesday 30th and Thursday 1st October – Beeston
Wednesday 30th, Thursday 1st and Friday 2nd October – East Leake (Rushcliffe)
Friday 2nd, Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th October – Kirkby in Ashfield
You must book in for a test prior to attending a mobile testing unit. You will be informed of the exact location for your test once you have gone through the booking process.
As well as MTUs, there is also a fixed testing drive-through site at the Motorpoint Arena car park behind the BBC building in Nottingham.
Locations are drive-through only so you either need to drive or be driven to a site.
The test involves taking a swab of the nose and the back of the throat, which can be done by yourself or by a tester. You will receive your test result via text or email within 72 hours. If your test is positive, you must self-isolate immediately. For more information on receiving your result, visit the NHS website.
Details of locations of MTUs across the county will be regularly updated on the CCG website. Locations are subject to change in response to local outbreaks and accurate at the time of publishing.
