Booking a test
The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) is aware of these providers (including NHS Test & Trace) who may be able to conduct tests for day 2 and day 8 testing for international arrivals.
This list is continually updated by DHSC as providers declare that they meet the required standards and are reviewed by UKAS.
The government does not endorse or recommend any test provider. Individuals should conduct their own research about available providers and the tests they supply.
The first test will be taken on or before day 2 of your quarantine period and the second test will be taken on or after day 8 of your quarantine period.
