There is high demand for testing at the moment which is causing frustration for people who are struggling to book a test.

Trafford is part of the National Testing Programme so the booking issues are out of our control. 

We know that this is a major cause of concern for those trying to book a test and we have raised the issue at a national level.

In the meantime we would ask anyone who tries to book a test and is unable to do so, or who is offered a location or time which is not convenient, to please wait a few hours and then try again. 

At the moment you should only be booking a test if for you or your family member have coronavirus symptoms which are a high temperature, new continuous cough or a loss/change in sense of smell or taste.

If you have symptoms you must also self-isolate with the members of your household until you have the test results.
