Rapid Lateral Flow Device test kits

Please note, lateral flow testing is not suitable for those displaying symptoms of Covid-19 or those who have been identified as a close contact. 
  • If you are a close contact of a confirmed positive case, are fully vaccinated and have no symptoms, you do not need to self-isolate, however you will need to book a PCR test on days 2 and days 8 using this web link. 
  • If you are a close contact of a confirmed positive case but not fully vaccinated you must self-isolate for 10 days following last contact with the positive person.  You will be asked to take a PCR test but, even if this is negative, you will still need to complete the isolation period.
