Problem with Expresstest at BHX is that they offer tests for Red and Amber but not for Green, so you need to take a Day 2 PCR test somewhere else. Last Friday we arrived and drove to LocalPCR in Birmingham who were very efficient. Results in less than 24 hours.31 May 2021

@FaroFlyer is that not the problem with ALL testing centres? Way too much demand and too little capacity.
When we had our Fit to Fly tests at BHX there were no queues and, 3 days later when we checked in for our flight I noticed that there were, again, no queues at Expresstest BHX.10 Jun 2021
