Lateral flow testing in Ribble Valley

We can all do our bit to break the transmission of coronavirus.

Up to a third of people with Covid-19 have no symptoms and by rapidly identifying these asymptomatic cases we can stop the spread of the virus.

Lateral flow testing is a simple way to keep yourself, friends, family, colleagues and customers safe.

Everyone is entitled to free twice-weekly lateral flow tests.

The tests are quick, easy and free. They take less than 10 minutes and you will get the result within half an hour.

You can get tested and collect up to two boxes of seven kits for free from centres in Clitheroe, Longridge and Whalley.
