Rachel Maclean, MP for Redditch, said:

“Following the small spike in cases we saw in Redditch last month, I’ve been lobbying public health officials to set-up a walk-in COVID-19 testing centre in our town.

“I’m pleased to confirm Redditch will be getting this facility. Worcestershire public health officials have told me this walk-in facility will be located at the Abbey Stadium and it will open in around two weeks’ time.

“I’m glad we’re getting this facility as it will make it easier for residents to access testing, helping us to control this virus.”
