Free rapid COVID-19 tests
All households in Wirral can now access twice-weekly rapid symptom-free tests. Alongside vaccine rollout, regular testing will help us to prevent outbreaks.
Regular symptom-free testing can be accessed at one of Wirral’s four Community Testing centres:
Floral Pavilion, New Brighton, 7 days a week, 10.30am to 6.15pm
Greasby Library, 7 days a week, 10.30am to 6.15pm
Eastham Library, 7 days a week, 10.30am to 6.15pm
Former House of Fraser Building, Birkenhead, 6 days a week (closed Sunday) 9am to 4.15pm.
Residents have the choice of attending the centres to take a test with the support of the staff there, or collecting a box of kits for the household to use at home. Testing kits can also be collected from the symptoms-only testing centres in Birkenhead, Bebington, Liscard and Heswall from 2.30pm to 8pm every day. 
For those that can’t access tests through the above routes, they can be ordered online or through 119, which will be delivered to the home address.
More information on all of the ways to access testing in Wirral is available at:  or call the Coronavirus Helpline on 0151 666 5050.
