Community Testing Units (CTUs)

Mobile Testing Unit (MTU)

Mobile testing is an agile capability that allows temporary testing sites to be set up quickly to serve communities on a rolling basis. There are 19 mobile testing units in Wales. 15 of these are operated by commercial providers through the local health boards. The remaining 4 are operated by the Welsh Ambulance Service NHS Trust (WAST) which rapidly respond to incidents and outbreaks.
