All available appointments are on the national portal.

Other testing stations that are bookable via the government’s national site include Copdock near Ipswich, Stansted and Peterborough.

There will be more temporary testing centres in place over the next few weeks.

Essential workers such as NHS staff, care home staff and teachers also have the choice to book a test at three other permanent centres in Norfolk (James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston, Centrum Centre near the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, and at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King’s Lynn). Appointments for these locations cannot be booked using the national portal, they must be booked using a local system. See below.

Your employer will be given a unique reference number and the contact details for your triage.
