Just got relayed this tale of a friend of a friend trying to get a test:
Guy from Cheltenham wanted to get a test this morning as he was symptomatic. He got told that there were no tests locally and he would have to go to Derby, 100 miles away. Thought strawberry float that so phoned around the local areas and discovered that actually there was space for testing in Swindon, still a trip but only 30 miles away. Then he tries to register for a test at Swindon through the online system but it keeps failing to issue him a QR code which apparently he is required to show on site in order to get the test. Eventually after trying multiple times he gets the system to book him a test in Swindon after entering his home address as being from ... Edinburgh! When he arrives at the testing centre it is a ghost town - just people sat around doing nothing. They have the capacity to test up to 500 people per day apparently but are using a tiny fraction of that because no strawberry floater can book a test!
What makes it even worse is that presumably if he does get a positive result back then it will get marked down on the stats for Edinburgh and not Cheltenham as that is the address he had to put into the system in order to book the bloody thing in the first place!
