Mobile Lateral Flow Test and Collect

Enjoy Winter Safely

It is recommended that we all continue to test regularly to help manage periods of risk such as after close contact with others in a higher risk environment, or before spending time with a more vulnerable person. This will help to keep yourself and others as safe as possible so that together, we can all enjoy winter safely.

Over the next week, Kirklees Council’s Mobile Test and Collect Team will be visiting Huddersfield town centre, Tolson Museum, Thornton Lodge, Marsh, Birstall, Ravensthorpe and Heckmondwike.

The tests come with instructions on how to use them and how frequently you should take them. The team are available to answer any questions about testing and how to use the tests should you need help.

Timetable for mobile test and collect locations

We’ll be visiting the following locations where you will be able to pick up your lateral flow home testing kits or get an assisted lateral flow test.
