The Physiotherapy Department where COVID-19 tests will be conducted as of Monday 31 August.

The Health Services Authority (HSA) will be relocating the COVID-19 testing clinic from the General Practice Building to the previous location of the Physiotherapy Department on Monday 31 August. 

The new location is a dedicated space for persons being tested and has additional indoor seating, providing a better patient experience.

HSA recently launched an online appointment booking tool for the public to schedule free COVID-19 tests https://www.hsa.ky/Appointment/. Testing is by appointment only and must be made at least two business days in advance. Appointment times are currently available between 7.30am and 8.20am Monday - Friday.

If a COVID-19 test is required for travel purposes, travellers are reminded to check the entry requirements for the country they are flying to, as some have testing guidelines in place (ie: 72 hours before travel). As part of the online appointment booking form, travellers will be asked to enter their departure date.

All persons screened are also enrolled into the free MyHSA Patient Portal which provides 24-hour secure access to their health information as well as other convenient features. For more information on how to set up a patient portal account, visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wD1cpfdeRkM.

To self-register for the COVID-19 screening, persons can book an appointment directly at www.hsa.ky/Appointment/. If you have any questions or would like to book on-site testing for 15 or more persons, please contact covidscreening@hsa.ky.
