  • Community testing in Fife

    Created: 23/11/2021

    Around 1 in 3 people with COVID-19 have no symptoms but could pass the virus on to loved ones, friends and the wider community without knowing it.

    Community testing sites are available across Fife, providing quick and easy access to testing when you don’t have symptoms. By getting tested you can find out if you have the virus and if you are positive take immediate action to stop the spread of the virus to others by self-isolating.

    NHS Fife is using the most up-to-date public health information to determine where testing sites are located in Fife. By targeting specific areas, we can make the most impact and help reduce the spread of COVID-19.

    You can drop-in to all sites during opening hours there is no need to make an appointment.

    The current Community Testing model in Fife comprises four fixed sites (Leys Park Road, Dunfermline; Glebe Centre, Kirkcaldy; Parkgate Centre, Rosyth, and the Maxwell Centre, Cowdenbeath) and five mobile units, which are deployed based on the most up-to-date Public Health data. More information here.

    For stakeholders:

    NHS Fife is running a campaign to encourage Fifers to take two COVID-19 tests weekly and help lower the transmission rate of the virus. The team is asking third sector organisations to help promote the importance of community testing by accessing this stakeholder toolkit and campaign resources. Please use these resources and the hashtag #CTFife to help spread the word.
