Theses hours are from this they forward the period of walk in testing is allowed monday to friday.
Those after 4pm are now allocated to pre-booked appointments that have been scheduled trough the online portal of at the referral of a citizens GP
With the age bracket lowering now, the option for those under 40 to pre-book appoitments has seen the ultra demand for these pre-booked appoitments, that the time for the widespead walk in appointments, to start to be shortened.
