Lateral flow device distribution and assuring compliance to testing regimes

Asymptomatic staff testing remains an important component of infection prevention and control, which all organisations and staff should adhere to. From Monday 5 July, NHS staff can order their tests directly through the government lateral flow test ordering portal for delivery to their home address.

Primary care staff will continue to report their test on the website as per current practice. Trusts can choose whether to continue with their internal method of reporting results as per current practice, or whether to direct staff to reporting on the website. More information is in our letter and supporting guidance.
