Where can I get a Covid Test in Islington?

Covid-19 testing Islington

Living or working in Islington opens up many options for getting a Covid-19 test.

With Tube, taxi and bus routes that can take you anywhere in the city, we offer a UK Government accredited testing clinic a little closer to home, saving you time and money on journeys outside of the Islington area.

There are several different private testing facilities close to Islington that will offer Covid tests. We have been located in Upper Street since January 2021 and offer a clean and disinfected clinic to complete your private test. We have a socially distanced seating area for customers, so if you’ve walked to our clinic to get a Covid test in Islington you will be welcomed with a comfy seat whilst we discuss your appointment requirements.

As you may have heard in the news over the past month or so, there are a lot of Covid testing businesses in Islington and across the UK that are not performing to government requirements. In such instances we fully support the governments interaction with these businesses, especially if the service being offered is not meeting the required industry standards.

We undertake all possible steps to provide you the customer with a clean, friendly, fast and efficient service at our clinic. We have recently had UCAS examine our business to the highest standards that they require.

If you’re not able to visit our Covid testing clinic in Islington, we also offer test kits you can complete from the comfort of your home: Covid-19 postal testing kits

Each of the tests noted above can be completed from home, although with the Fit to Fly, you may need to attend the Islington covid clinic, dependant on requirements of your travel plans.
