Covid-19 testing centre at Haydock Park






An approach was made by our local MP and Chair of the All Parliamentary Group for Racing, Conor McGinn, who asked if we could provide space for a testing centre. As a result, we have been working with DCMS, Deloitte, G4S, Boots and the military to provide a Covid-19 testing centre for the local community since mid-April. To-date, it’s been a big success and we’ve managed to put on 17 racedays whilst also providing this facility to the local community.
