Coronavirus Testing Centres
Community Testing Centre in Water Orton - ONLY for people with NO SYMPTOMS
Who should get a test?
People, including children, who live or work in North Warwickshire WITHOUT Coronavirus symptoms.
Why should I get a test if I don't have any symptoms?
By testing people who don’t have symptoms, we are hoping to catch those who are not aware that they have the virus to ensure that they don’t unwittingly spread it to other people - including friends, loved ones and work colleagues.

Beeline Community Transport is a registered charity based in Atherstone. Delivery of the service is partly funded by Warwickshire County Council, but has recently lost two thirds of it’s funding, and is now dependent on donations and other fundraising activity. Beeline is a member of Warwickshire Voluntary Transport, a partnership of the five community schemes in Warwickshire, who work together to resolve funding issues, and to provide a better service for the client.
Beeline volunteers use their own cars to provide a door-to-door transport service to enable people who live in North Warwickshire, or who are registered with a surgery in the Borough, with transport to and from hospitals, doctors and dentist appointments, opticians, and chiropodists, Coronavirus Community Testing Centre at Water Orton and for Coronavirus vaccinations. The service is also for residents who are unable to use public or private transport; either through sickness or disability, or because the bus service does not meet their needs.
Passengers pay 45p per mile from the driver’s home to their destination and return, plus a £2 booking fee. If the appointment is a lengthy one, and requires the driver to make two journeys, passengers will be required to pay for both journeys.
Booking is done over the phone, with the office open Monday to Friday 9am -1pm. This needs to be done at least a few days in advance of the requested journey.
