Wakefield Community Collect

Wakefield Community Collect is a service for you to collect packs of test kits so that your whole family can test twice weekly at home.

Who can get tested?

You are eligible to collect these tests if:

  • You belong to the household, support or childcare bubble of a school-age child (nursery, primary, secondary school and college age)

Secondary school and college-aged children will receive tests direct from their school. This collection service is for their families and support bubbles.

Can I use these tests if I have symptoms?

Lateral flow tests are ONLY for people who do NOT have symptoms of possible COVID-19. If you do have any symptoms of Coronavirus then you need to book a PCR test immediately here: nhs.uk/ask-for-a-coronavirus-test or by calling 01924 224497.

Where can I collect tests?

You can collect tests from our three community testing sites, or from four of our local libraries.
