PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A family was left 'bewildered' after people arrived on their doorstep expecting a Covid-19 test following a Google listing error. Online searches showed the family's residential address in Oxhill Road, Handsworth Wood, share the same house number as luxury wedding venue Manor Grove, which is currently being used by private GP surgery Midland Health. It led to "five different people" who had sought to Google the GP's address then unwittingly turn up at the terraced house rather than the pop-up coronavirus test centre on the other side of the road over the last week. The mum, who BirminghamLive is not naming, later stuck a red penned notice in her window, which says: "Go across the road to Manor Grove for Covid Tests - Not here!" "This has been happening over the last week. About five different people have turned up. I just want an end to it," she said.

They declined to comment further. Midland Health - which offers fast Covid and antibody test results costing between £85 and £295 - apologised for any inconvenience caused to the occupants over the Google listing error. The woman's next door neighbour said the family were left "bewildered" and he was equally as shocked after someone seeking a Covid test also knocked on his door. "The entrance to the test centre is hidden. You have to go past Tesco Express, through a security gate and around the back to find it," he said. "The only numbered place which is evident is the house and that's wrong from a Google search. It really shouldn't have happened.

." Midland Health said the issue had been rectified with Manor Grove. They also said that people seeking a Covid test - made by prior appointment - were "well people who need a test for essential travel or work".

"The listing for Manor Grove has now been updated to Manor Grove, Oxhill Road. "The increased demand for our services has meant that we have had to establish clinics in conference centres such as Manor Grove due to space, to allow safe entry and exits and also social distancing for patients and staff. "We offer Covid testing for people who need a test for work, essential travel or in some cases emergency travel in the event of bereavement or to return to their home country. "We have always had the correct address for the Midland Health clinic at Manor Grove on our website and also on our email booking confirmation which we send to patients ahead of their appointment. "This has very clear instructions on how to find us at Manor Grove including appropriate landmarks such as the Tesco Express that we are next door to and to enter through the gates at the side of Tesco Express. "We also help those that maybe lost, navigate to the clinic if they were to call our telephone number and one of the team will direct them to the correct address and landmarks. "Our clinic has a robust screening procedure when someone books an appointment to ensure that no-one who is unwell or who should be in isolation or quarantine attends the clinic. Essentially the testing is for well people who need a test for essential travel or work. "We can apologise for the inconvenience cause by some patients ending up at the property in question. "We feel this is due to an error in the Google listing for the site that we are using and this has now been updated so should not occur in the future."
