Book an LFD test

Every adult in England is now able to book up to two lateral flow tests a week, in line with government guidelines, at one of our local test sites.

Regular, repeat testing is recommended to support people throughout the easing of lockdown and whilst vaccination is being rolled out. This will provide ongoing reassurance and, where positive cases are found, it helps break the chains of transmission.

Even if you test negative, please continue to follow all government guidelines for staying safe.

If you receive a positive lateral flow test result you must self-isolate and order a confirmatory PCR test.

Please book your weekly lateral flow device (LFD) tests at one of the following sites:

Dorset Council area

You will need to book each test individually but are encouraged to book as many tests as you can in advance. You will be sent an email reminder for each test booked. Please make sure your email address is correct so you receive your reminders.

BCP Council area

Two booking options are available – either choose a six-week block booking option or book individual slots.

Block booking - you can block book six tests, one a week for six weeks at the same time, same day, same location. If you would like two tests every week (recommended), you can make another block booking, ideally leaving a gap of three days.

Single bookings - if you cannot commit to the same day and time each week, you can book each test individually but are encouraged to book as many tests as you can in advance.

With both block or single bookings you will receive an email reminder and the option to choose a text reminder.

Booking is essential.
