Tested has just got easier with the new COVID-19 testing Centre at the University of Greenwich’s Avery Hill campus.

Working in partnership with the Department of Health and Social Care and the University of Greenwich, this much-needed testing centre located at the University of Greenwich, Avery Hill Road, Eltham, SE9 2UG is accessible on foot only.

We also provide additional testing facilities at: 

  • 02 North Greenwich, SE10 - drive-through facility only 

  • Charlton Athletic Football Club, SE7 - mobile testing facility accessible by car 

Booking is essential for all testing centres. Order a home test kit if you cannot get to a test site. For more details and how to book visit www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test 

The three main symptoms of COVID-19 are:  

  • a high temperature 

  • a new, continuous cough 

  • a loss of, or change to, your sense of smell or taste.
