Reply To: Free Lateral Flow Tests from April

Fiona Sugden-Best

So husband just had a text about new treatment and it now says this when ordering a test on gov.uk , he still couldn’t get one as one to send out.

Check if you are eligible to order rapid lateral flow tests
In England, you can order tests if:
you have a health condition which means you’re eligible for COVID-19 treatments (opens in new tab)
your doctor or healthcare professional has told you to get a test because you’re being admitted to hospital
you’ve spoken to your GP or healthcare professional recently and they asked you to get a test
You can also order tests if:
you work for the NHS in a patient-facing role, and you’re taking part in the NHS staff testing programme
you work for an NHS-commissioned independent healthcare provider in a patient-facing role looking after NHS patients
you work for the NHS and you have one of the 3 main COVID-19 symptoms (opens in new tab) or you have recently tested positive and need to take a test to return to work
you work in the adult social care sector as a personal assistant, a Shared Lives carer, a Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspector or a social worker (opens in new tab)

No sue then how easy for independent clinicians to acquire.
