North Shore Covid Testing


Fast, safe, outdoor Covid testing is available at Northcare between 8am and 5pm every day (7 days). Northcare is a designated Covid Testing Centre on the Northshore and has been a pop-up CBAC (community-based assessment centre) during the last lockdown. Testing is done on a drive-through basis. You arrive, stay in your car and either phone reception or speak to attendants who take your details, print forms and stickers and then take a nasal swab. We do our best to take the swabs as gently as possible but it can be a bit uncomfortable. It is very quick.

We understand your time is precious and we pride ourselves on doing our Covid testing fast. People working for companies who require repeat testing are even faster as once they've been for a first test, we can process them more quickly. We have tried to take the fear factor out of testing and you will find our nurses and testing station fun with music and lights.

For safe, reliable and fast Covid testing on the North Shore come and see us.
