Commenting, Tim Mordaunt. Chief Executive Officer at Platinum Ambulance Service said “In the Spring of 2020, we launched our testing service, initially we did this as we wanted to provide a local community service to those living near to our West Sussex base, this then developed to our being able to offer the service across the South East. 

“In recent months, we have continued to receive an increase in the number of enquiries from members of the public, education facilities, businesses, and a number of other organisations. I am delighted that the opening of our new testing centre will enable us to be able to continue to support this by both increasing the number of tests we can undertake and expanding the range of tests we are able to offer, to date we have carried out over 10,000 tests to members of the public and schools.” 

Access to the testing centre

To access the testing centre, you need to enter the main gate of The All England Jumping Course, Hickstead. Visitors are advised to use postcode BN6 9HR and follow the signage, which can be seen a further 20 metres upon entering the slip road.
