A coronavirus test centre for NHS workers has opened at Ikea's store in Wembley.

Bosses at the store in north west London said they were "enormously proud" to offer the site as an additional medical facility.

We have also responded to requests from intensive care units and doctors across the country by delivering tens of thousands of our disposable paper tape measures, to help them continue their amazing care for their patients. We have also donated food to local hospitals, food banks, and shelters to help provide some immediate relief in the short term. We are currently working on additional plans to support our communities - both now and in the longer term - in a meaningful way through the ongoing crisis, together with the NHS, and charity partners such as Barnardo's and Breaking Barriers.


At the weekend it was revealed a temporary drive through coronavirus testing station had been built in the car park of Chessington World of Adventures in Surrey.
