Is it optional for our staff to take Lateral Flow Tests?

Lateral Flow Tests – We’ve ordered and received the kits, but haven't got round to testing staff yet. Is this something which we should be doing or is it optional?

 

It’s currently voluntary, but those that do it must upload their results on the GOV.UK website https://www.gov.uk/report-covid19-result, although the Practice Manager should be informed of any positive tests. All you need to do is distribute the kits to staff and they can test at home 2 to 3 times a week.

You can find some guidance here:

  • QCS Policy – COVID-19 Testing Policy
  • Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) standard operating procedure: https://bit.ly/2M4pHS3
