Testing is a very important part of tackling the COVID-19 pandemic. In May 2020 we published an explainer on who can get a Covid-19 test. Since then the government has expanded their testing capabilities and more people are now eligible for coronavirus tests. There are two types of tests you might be eligible for. The first is to determine whether someone currently has the virus. This is called an antigen or PCR test. The second determines whether someone has had the virus in the past and is called an antibody test.


**Please note: Healthwatch Camden does not provide or schedule COVID-19 tests. Read below for information and guidance on testing, including how to book a test.



Join our online Q&A event with Kate Slemeck, Chief Executive of the Royal Free Hospital and Marcel Levi, Chief Executive of University College Hospital.
