GP staff Covid tests update

In order to ensure that all practices have sufficient supplies of Lateral Flow Tests, we are arranging for a courier to drop off a contingency supply of these testing kits to every practice in the next few days.

Should any staff members need a PCR test, all Health staff will be prioritised at all Local Authority run PCR swab testing sites in NE London. Staff should bring ID with them. 

We are also developing a home based testing service via Barts Health as a reserve in case the national testing service becomes overwhelmed.
