Home nasal swab testing kits (lateral flow tests)

You will be given instructions when you receive your lateral flow kits and have the chance to ask questions, but you can also find all the information here and on the Staff App under the HR section.

All eligible staff will initially receive a 12-week supply of testing kits. Anyone testing positive on the home device will need to self-isolate immediately and get a follow-up test through our on-site COVID-19 Testing Unit.
