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.

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.

Tests are also being carried out at a fixed testing drive-through site at the Motorpoint Arena car park behind the BBC building in Nottingham.

Do not turn up for a test without booking first. You can do this by either ringing 119 or booking via the NHS website.

*Details of locations of MTUs across the county will be regularly updated.

Locations are subject to change in response to local outbreaks and accurate at the time of publishing.
