Coronavirus testing for key workers in Norfolk and Waveney Key workers (including NHS, care home staff, teachers etc) concerned that they have coronavirus (Covid-19) symptoms can get tested either using a dedicated local service or the national booking system.

The three local sites for key workers in Norfolk and Waveney are at:

  • James Paget University Hospital
  • The Centrum Centre near Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital
  • Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King’s Lynn

The service is by appointment only. Appointments for these locations cannot be booked using the national portal, they must be booked using our local system:

Your employer will be given a unique reference number and the contact details for your triage.

Key workers can also be tested using the national booking system. You will be offered a choice of a home testing kit or travelling to a regional testing centre at Ipswich, Peterborough or Stansted, or a mobile testing centre if available.
