There are a number of testing providers on the providers’ list, based in different locations around England. Many offer a choice between testing at a site or an at-home test, meaning that anyone who is not easily able to access a testing site has the option of having a test sent to the location where they are self-isolating.

We are continuing to work at pace to bring further providers on to the providers’ list as and when they have self-declared that they meet the minimum standards.
