Changes to the COVID-19 test kit distribution service


An amended COVID-19 test kit distribution service will begin from 4 October. As part of the changes, people will be asked to register on www.gov.uk or via 119 for a collect code to pick up test kits. More information is available from the Service Specification on the NHS BSA website

To support this change resources have been produced for pharmacies which consist of A3 and A4 posters, and A5 leaflets. These will be delivered by DX this week and will be clearly marked as NHS Test and Trace. Please display these from Monday 13 September onwards. If you do not receive delivery by 15 September, please contact: PharmacyCollect@dhsc.gov.uk.

The URL on the resources will be live from Monday 13 September and people will be able to register for the collect code from 1 October. 

Additional resources will be available on the Coronavirus Campaign Resource Centre from 13 September at: coronavirusresources.phe.gov.uk/pharmacy-collect. This includes co-branding templates, suggested copy for social media and additional posters translated into 12 languages.
