COVID-19 SCREENING SERVICE LAUNCHED AT CENTRALE SHOPPING CENTRE 

The walk-in facility is Cignpost ExpressTest’s first COVID-19 testing site to be located in a mall 

Cignpost ExpressTest (a division of Cignpost Diagnostics Ltd) has today opened a new walk-in Covid-19 screening service inside Centrale Shopping Centre, Croydon. The site, located on the Lower Mall, is offering fast and accurate PCR swab tests. 

The new facility is Cignpost ExpressTest’s first walk-in site both in a shopping centre and within London and will be of particular use to members of the public who are symptomless and so do not qualify for NHS emergency testing, but require a green light to visit family members or fly abroad after May 17th.  

The tests on offer are priced at the discounted rate of £80 per person for travel passengers and £99 per person for the test-only service. ExpressTest is delivered using the latest gold standard PCR equipment that is fully CE-IVD certified and manufactured to the highest possible standards, and tests are carried out by trained Screening Practitioners.  

The site at Centrale, is one of ten new sites to open across the UK before the end of May. The expansion of Cignpost means that 80% of the population are within a 60-minute drive of a Cignpost ExpressTest site. As well as being a selected provider of discounted COVID-19 testing to British Airways, the company also provides gold-standard PCR tests at Gatwick, Heathrow and Birmingham Airports, as well as at Brent Cross Shopping Centre.  

Nick Markham, Founder of Cignpost ExpressTestsaid: 

“We at are delighted to be offer our private testing service to customers within a new setting and to be supporting local destinations during the pandemic. 

Proving reassurance about people’s health is our number one priority. For the next few months and beyond, there will be a continued need for gold standard PCR testing, and our new site at Centrale Shopping Centre is a great addition to our nationwide services. We’re pleased to bring Covid-19 screening services to the local community, and whether for personal or business travel, we can deliver them at an affordable cost.” 

Joanne Bailey, General Manager of Centrale Shopping Centre said: 

“The past year has been an extremely challenging time for so many people, and I know we’re all looking forward to getting back to some kind of normal. The new ExpressTest facility at Centrale is part of that journey, as it will help the people get rapid tests, travel abroad and reconnect with family and friends safely once restrictions end.”
