Community Testing Units (CTUs)

Community Testing Units in Wales are linked to health care settings and are operated by the local health boards. Testing is prioritised for health care workers but some do facilitate testing for other critical workers as capacity allows. Testing is organised at a local level by the health boards.

Mobile swab units

There are 8 mobile units in Wales and these are operated by the military and are deployed by the local health boards to support testing priorities in the regions.

Regional testing centres

Drive-through testing centres in Wales are located at:

  • Cardiff City Stadium (Cardiff)
  • Rodney Parade Stadium, Newport (Gwent)
  • Abercynon Railway Station (Rhondda Cynon Taf)
  • Cwm, near Ebbw Vale (Blaenau Gwent)
