'Drive-through' coronavirus test centre at Bristol Airport for key workers

Key workers will soon be able to get tested for coronavirus at Bristol Airport as part of the Government's drive to increase testing.

It's hoped the 'drive-through' centre will remove any uncertainty for those working on the frontline.

NHS staff and other key workers will be able to get tested on an appointment only basis and will receive their results within a few days.

Bristol Airport is one of 32 sites across the country where centres have been set up as the Government scales up testing.

By the end of the month the aim is that 100,000 tests can be carried out across the UK.

I am very proud that Bristol Airport is able to play a small but extremely important role in supporting the Government’s target to test more and more frontline NHS and key workers by making available our staff car park and facilities to become a large scale drive-through testing station.
