Provided by National Services Scotland and staffed by the Scottish Ambulance Service, the mobile testing unit will visit the area for a two-week period, providing the community with easy access to testing.

Testing is by appointment which can be arranged online at https://www.nhsinform.scot/ or via 0800 028 2816.

When booking, members of the public should indicate that they are taking part in a pilot project and select ‘taking part in community testing’.

The mobile unit will operate from 9.30am to 6:00pm, seven days a week.

Safe and secure, the strictest hygiene measures are in place on-site.

Not everyone with COVID-19 has symptoms but they could still be infectious and spread the virus.

By providing testing for the local population, cases can be identified and the spread of the virus reduced.
