Changes to how primary care staff access lateral flow devices for asymptomatic testing – England only

Asymptomatic staff testing is an important component of Infection Prevention and Control, which all organisations and staff have a duty to adhere to.

From 5 July 2021, all NHS staff can order tests directly through the government lateral flow ordering portal and have these delivered to their home addresses.
