Asymptomatic testing (COVID-19)

In line with the Scottish Government's Test and Protect Transition Plan, asymptomatic testing is no longer available to the general public.

All asymptomatic test sites in North Ayrshire have now closed, and packs of Lateral Flow Tests (LFT) are no longer available from test sites, pharmacies or libraries.

In addition, free LFT tests can no longer be ordered online for the general public, with a few exceptions.

You can still access testing if:

An unpaid carer is someone providing face-to-face care to someone due to a disability, long-term health condition or old age.

If you're a health and social care worker, you should access testing through your organisation.

If you're going into hospital, you should access testing through that service.

Anyone else who is eligible for testing can order tests online or by phoning 119.
