Reply To: Free Lateral Flow Tests from April

My husband is undergoing chemo and the nursing team have been given no guidance and he is in the most extremely vulnerable group, going for his 5th jab Monday. It was actually my last day working in the NHS today and there just seems to be no plan at all. We’ve been stocking up on tests as we’ve been shielding with chemo ongoing for a year now and my elderly mother also lives with us so have enough to keep us going when needed as we’ve all been ordering, but I will not be see patients at home in my clinic for the foreseeable as they won’t  have access to tests. 
It is very concerning all round and the NHS really seems to be at breaking point – everyone is exhausted.
