Mobile testing in Catford
Testing is key to keeping Lewisham safe during the pandemic. Many people in Lewisham are taking tests for COVID-19, and only around one per cent are testing positive. This compares well with many other parts of London. Behind the scenes, LBL has been working hard to ensure we’ve got testing facilities that are local and easily accessible.
If you have any of the symptoms (a high temperature; a new, persistent cough; or a change in sense of smell or taste) remember to stay home (self-isolate) and book a test via the NHS website or by calling 119. When you book, you’ll be able to choose between receiving a home testing kit and booking an appointment at a local testing location (you’ll be asked to provide your postcode). Catford currently hosts a mobile testing unit once every three days but your closest location may be outside the borough. You can find the locations of mobile testing units in advance on our website. These units usually operate from 10.30am to 3pm. You need to book an appointment online before you go for a test.
