Ordering of COVID-19 staff testing devices in England

In November, the government announced that testing will be made available to all asymptomatic patient-facing NHS staff, including those working in dentistry. NHS England have published details of how practices can order lateral flow testing devices for their team members.

Practices with NHS contracts in England should have been sent an invitation directly to order testing devices. Following receipt of an invitation, practices should log on and complete their order as quickly as possible. The final closing date for orders across all contractors will be Wednesday 30 December. Eligible practices who have not received an invitation should contact Primary Care Services England directly.
