I've not had any symptoms and I booked a drive through test using the link in the first post and based on the criteria quoted below, (in italics). I think you're over-thinking things.

Have you tried booking a test? Don't forget, although you may test negative, you could catch it the next day, it's a bit like an MOT on a car, meaningless after a couple of hours.

"Who can be tested

If you’re an essential worker in England, Scotland or Northern Ireland, you can apply for priority testing through GOV.UK by following the guidance on testing for essential workers below.

all NHS and social care staff, including:
