Getting a COVID-19 test

Here’s the latest information on COVID-19 testing (plus some handy tips to help speed up the process) 

  • If you were at a location of interest at the specified times or have cold and flu symptoms, please call Healthline on 0800 358 5453 for advice on testing.
  • Calling Healthline before your test means your test will be tracked and processed faster by our laboratories.
  • If you know your NHI number, please bring it with you. You can find your NHI number on a hospital letter or prescription, or by calling 0800 855 066.
  • It’s very important that you take your day-12 test on day 12. You cannot have your day-12 test early.

And please remember that anyone awaiting a test result, or who is a close contact, should be self-isolating and must not leave the house. Please be patient while waiting for your test results.

Stay home, stay safe, be kind.
