Lateral Flow home test kit

Coronavirus (COVID-19) tests are no longer free for most people.

Some people can still get free COVID-19 rapid lateral flow tests from the NHS. PCR tests (tests that go to a lab) are less likely to be used.

You can get tests if:

  • you have a health condition which means you’re eligible for COVID-19 treatments
  • you’re going into hospital
  • you work in the NHS or in adult social care

There are still steps you can take to reduce the risk of catching and spreading COVID-19

You might be eligible to order a free pack of rapid lateral flow tests (external link) to be sent to your home.
