I am delighted to confirm that, thanks to support from the Department for Health and Social Care, additional testing capacity has been deployed in the Borough of Sutton.
Further to the Mobile Testing Unit that has been in operation at the Denmark Road car park for some time, this will now be based in Overton Park and then alternate between Overton Park and Denmark Road, visiting the Borough every three days. In addition, the DHSC has agreed to conduct site visits for a further three sites with a view to establishing more permanent Local Testing Sites - these are proposed to be in the Civic Centre car park, the Phoenix Centre car park, and the David Weir Leisure Centre car park.
It is our hope that these will be operational from the middle of this month.
This is superb news for local residents, and should go a long way to help people who are struggling to book tests, whilst also working to contain the virus and keep people in Carshalton and Wallington safe.
