Can I still get a PCR test to confirm COVID-19?

PCR tests, which were usually in place for people with symptoms of COVID-19 and which were sent to the labs for confirmation,  stopped being available to the general public from 31 March 2022.

PCR testing is provided directly by Health Boards only for health and social care staff (as they work with vulnerable people) and for patients undergoing certain treatments. If you need a PCR as a patient, you will be contacted directly with an appointment and information about where you need to attend for your test.

PCR testing is also available for those who have symptoms and work in health and care, special education provision, care home residents and prisoners, please contact you organisations for information on this.
