Coronavirus Lateral Flow Tests

Posted on April 9th, 2021

You may have seen a news article that you can collect Lateral Flow Tests from your GP Surgery.

This is incorrect.

Use the service linked below to order free packs of rapid lateral flow tests to be sent to your home in England.

https://www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests

A pack of tests contains 7 tests. You can order one pack per household each day.

You can only use this service if:

  • you do not have coronavirus symptoms
  • you live in England
  • you’re 18 or older
  • you have not been told to self-isolate
  • you cannot get tests from your work, school, college or university (ask them for rapid lateral flow tests)

Do not use a rapid lateral flow test if you have coronavirus symptoms. Get a PCR test and self-isolate.

You can also: get a rapid lateral flow test via:

  • find a pharmacy where you can collect tests (Not the GP Dispensary)
  • find a local site to get tested at
  • find a local site where you can collect tests
  • get tests from your employer (if you cannot work from home)

When collecting packs of tests, you can collect 2 packs at a time (14 tests in total).

If you cannot order online, call 119.

Lines are open 7am to 11pm and calls are free.
