Updates to Covid-19 Testing for Pharmacy Staff

April 28, 2020

As key workers, pharmacy staff are eligible for free Covid-19 testing.  Across the UK, 50 drive-through regional testing sites are being established, including some mobile access points.  The government has set an ambitious target of  100,000 tests per day to be carried out by the end of April 2020.

The previous methods to access the testing have now lapsed and all bookings need to be made through the government’s self-referral portal.

A user guide for the online portal can be downloaded HERE.

Pharmacies in Herefordshire and Worcestershire have the option to apply for priority testing through the CCG.  An email has been sent directly to pharmacies with details of the procedure. If you missed this email, please contact the LPC (ahwlpc@gmail.com) and we’ll forward you a copy as we can not share this information publicly.

You can find all the information and links on our updated TESTING PAGE.
