Staffordshire Pays Respects To HRH Prince Philip (1921 - 2021)

Testing for people with symptoms

If you have any of the following symptoms of coronavirus:

  • a high temperature
  • a new, continuous cough
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste

Or if you're asked to by NHS Test and Trace, you must isolate immediately, book a coronavirus test online or by ringing 119, and remain in isolation until you receive your test result.

Precautionary symptoms

It is possible to catch coronavirus and not display any symptoms. Many people who have tested positive also displayed other symptoms. Staffordshire residents are therefore advised to book a coronavirus test as a precaution if they have symptoms such as:

  • Headaches
  • Aches and pains
  • Feeling very tired for no good reason
  • Sore throat
  • Runny nose
  • Sneezing
  • Sometimes ‘tummy ache’ in children 

If you have one or more of these additional symptoms, book your test online and when you are able to, select the option “My local council has asked me to get a test”.

If you have these additional symptoms you can carry on going to school or work if you are well enough to do so, and only need to self-isolate if the test comes back positive.

Staffordshire national testing sites

As part of the national testing programme, Staffordshire has a number of drive- through, walk-through and mobile testing units in operation. These must be booked in advance online or by phoning 119.

There is good availability at all Staffordshire testing sites.

There are local sites at:

  • Newcastle Ryecroft Car Park, Newcastle-under-Lyme;
  • Keele University Science and Innovation Park, Keele;
  • Beecroft Road Car Park, Cannock; 
  • Stafford Education and Enterprise Park, Stafford; 
  • Hagley Park School Site, Rugeley
  • Meadowside Drive Car Park, Burton upon Trent;
  • Bet365 Stadium, Stoke.

Mobile testing units (MTU)

There are two units which tour the county, which again must be booked through the national portal
