The Goverment has now released details of how parents/carers and those in support bubbles can access lateral flow tests to test for Covid-19. Full details of the guidance can be found here:
Households and bubbles of pupils, students and staff of schools, nurseries and colleges: get rapid lateral flow tests – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
There are a number of ways home testing can be accessed:
1) You may be entitled to testing if your employer has signed up to workplace testing.
2) You can take a test via a lateral flow testing centre – details of these are available via the link above.
3) You can collect home test kits from various venues nationally. You do not need to make an appointment and most centres have afternoon/evening opening times. Again the link above details where these sites are and their opening times.
4) You can use the link above to order test kits to be delivered to your home address. These normally take two postal days to arrive and the box will contain 7 tests.
