COVID-19: Solihull Community testing centres to open to anyone without COVID symptoms
From Monday 8 March anyone living or working in Solihull who doesn’t have COVID symptoms can access regular, rapid COVID tests as part of Solihull Council’s community testing strategy to tackle the virus. The tests are provided at North Solihull Sports Centre and Tudor Grange Leisure Centre.
The centres use self-administered swab tests. Please note that these tests are for children over the age of 2 years old*. Trained staff will process the test and you will receive the results via SMS message from NHS Test and Trace within the hour.
Both sites are open 7 days a week Monday to Friday 8am-5.30pm, Saturday and Sunday 10am-1.30pm and tests must be booked online here. Anyone needing help to book should call 0121 704 6918, Monday – Thursday, 9am – 5pm, Friday 9am – 4pm. Please note this number is only for help if you are unable to access the website or if you have testing queries.
You must not have any symptoms of COVID-19 to use either of the Council’s community testing centres. If you generally feel unwell or develop symptoms (high temperature, new continuous cough, loss or change in sense of smell or taste) you need to book a test via https://www.solihull.gov.uk/COVID-19/covidtesting or by phoning 119 and Solihull Council’s local testing locations are Monkspath Hall Road or Birmingham Airport.

* Anyone aged 2-11 years old must have the test completed by a parent or guardian; those between 12 and 18 years old will require supervision from a parent or guardian.
