Vaccines and Testing

Regular testing is strongly recommended. It helps to know if we have the virus, even if we have already received a dose of any Covid-19 vaccines. From April 9th, everyone in the UK will be offered free lateral-flow testing kits, twice a week. Two of the big advantages of lateral-flow tests are their simplicity and speed. These tests provide results within 10 to 30 minutes and can be easily performed outside a laboratory.

Lateral Flow Tests can be performed by one of these three methods:

1. Bespoke test site

2. Community pharmacy

3. Ordering a home test kit for home use

For more details or to order these tests, please visit the specific NHS website. You should test regularly, in order to protect you and keep your household and your work place safer.
