How to access coronavirus testing in Hounslow 

Testing is an essential part of preventing the spread of coronavirus.  

If you have symptoms of coronavirus symptoms (fever, new cough, loss or change in taste/smell), it is important that you get tested. You and your household should also self-isolate and only leave the house to go and get tested. When leaving the house to get tested, you should wear a face covering, and drive or walk to the site and must not use public transport/taxi. 

If you have been instructed by the Council or Hospital to get a test, or you are a keyworker, then it is also important that you access testing.  

There are a variety of testing options available to Hounslow residents. You can order a home test to be completed from your home or you can book a test at the Mobile Testing Unit which is in Hounslow every 3 days. There are also daily testing bookings available at Padstow Walk in FelthamBrabazon Road in Heston, or Regional testing at Heathrow and Twickenham. Please do not attend any testing site without a booking.  

If there are capacity issues and you are struggling to access a test, or if your results are delayed, please contact 119, and continue to isolate in the meantime. This is important to reduce the spread of infection. 

If you are isolating at home with symptoms or a positive test, there is support available on how to manage symptoms. 

You should not utilise NHS tests if you have returned from a high-risk country and do not display any symptoms, nor should you use NHS tests in order to travel abroad. You must pay for private tests for this purpose. For more information on eligibility for testing, please click here
