    Latest Dudley Covid-19 Updates from 1st April 2022


    Dudley test centres closed under new COVID-19 guidance:

    People who live and work in Dudley borough are being reminded that covid-19 test centres have now closed.

    The PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) tests which detect the presence of the covid-19 virus in your body   and
    the LFT (Lateral Flow Test) tests which are used for testing people without symptoms of covid-19,  will be phased out for the majority of people in England. 

    As a consequence, the test centres at Orchard Lane, Flood Street and Studley Gate have now closed.

    Home test kit collection points have also now closed.

    People who are not eligible for free symptomatic testing and wish to test will be able to purchase LFT kits from high street pharmacies.


    From today (1 April 2022) free testing will only be available for people with symptoms if they are:

      1:  patients in hospital

      2:  eligible for treatments as they are at higher risk of getting seriously ill

      3:  living or working in high-risk settings such as Care Homes or the NHS


    5-11 Year Olds COVID-19 Vaccinations are Now Available:

    Children aged 5-11 are now eligible for their COVID-19 vaccine.

    You may take your child to a number of local sites to be vaccinated  –  no appointment needed.

    Vaccines are available from Monday 4 April 2022 but you may book an appointment from Saturday 2 April 2022.

    Click here to book or to find a walk-in site near you.

    Because space on our website is normally restrictred to events in both our parishes, it is difficult to include other informative data of the sort that are useful to as wide a range as possible for the benefit of our parishioners. This is only a minute amount of what is available on the government website but the links included here lead to many other areas of additional help and support. Unlike the wording of the title, not "everything" is included else there would not be room for the Newsletter and Parish Events!
    However, all the links open a treasure hove of useful services that not all people know existed.
