Based at Kincardine Community Centre, the site will provide testing for members of the public regardless of whether they have COVID-19 symptoms or not.

Not everyone with COVID-19 has symptoms but they could still be infectious and spreading the virus. By providing testing for the local population as a whole – whether symptomatic or not – cases can be identified and the spread of the virus reduced.

Provided by National Services Scotland and staffed by the Scottish Ambulance Service, the mobile testing unit at Kincardine will visit the area for a two-week period, providing the community with easy access to testing.

Testing is by appointment, to arrange a test members of the public should visit the NHS Inform website www.nhsinform.scot or call 0800 028 2816.

When booking, members of the public should indicate that they are taking part in a pilot project and select ‘taking part in community testing’.

The mobile unit will operate from 9.30am to 6pm, seven days a week. Safe and secure, the strictest hygiene measures are in place on-site.
