Relocation of Winsford rapid COVID testing unit

11 May 2021

Winsford’s asymptomatic COVID-19 test centre has relocated from Winsford Lifestyle Centre to The Dingle Recreation Centre, on Winsford High Street.

Open from 9am to 7pm Monday to Friday, and from 9am to 1pm on Saturdays, the centre is available for people to pop in, without needing an appointment, to get tested for free. Free kits to test at home are also available to collect.

The new facility is for people who show no symptoms of COVID-19; everyone should be testing themselves twice a week regardless of whether they have been vaccinated or not.

Anyone who has any symptoms of the virus should book a PCR test at: or by calling 119

One in three people with COVID-19 do not have any symptoms so asymptomatic tests help to identify positive cases and prevent people from spreading the virus unknowingly. Together we can contain the virus, keep our staff and customers safe and bring our lives back to normality.
