NHS Community Pharmacy COVID-19 Lateral Flow Device In Luton

The NHS Community Pharmacy COVID-19 Lateral Flow Device (LFD) Distribution Service improves access to testing by making test kits readily available at community pharmacies. The tests are for asymptomatic people to identify positive cases in the community and break the chain of transmission.

From the end of March 2021 the 'NHS community pharmacy COVID-19 lateral flow device (LFD) distribution service'  has been added to the NHS Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework as a new Advanced Service. Improving public access to COVID-19 antigen testing and identification of COVID-positive cases in the community, to break the chain of transmission. Working alongside existing NHS Test and Trace COVID-19 testing routes.

What is the Covid-19 Test Distribution Service ?

Within the NHS Test and Trace communications, the service will be referred to as Pharmacy Collect, advising asymptomatic people to collect LFD test kits, free of charge, from community pharmacies Like Birdsfoot Lane Pharmacy, to enable them to undertake regular testing as part of the Government’s COVID-19 roadmap plan.

Altough people can request tests for regular use for other reasons - the most common circumstances that will prompt a person to undertake regular tests are:

1. Child is at school / Work at a school / In a bubble with school children or staff

2. Leave the house for work

3. Local council has advised them to test

4. GP or another healthcare professional has advised them to test

People self-administer the tests and report results away from the pharmacy, e.g. at home. - The pharmacy is not involved in this process or the next steps for the person taking the test.
