AOP statement – Covid19 testing

We welcome the announcement from the Government yesterday that free COVID-19 tests will continue to be available to help protect specific groups when universal testing ends on 1 April. 

In a statement, the Department of Health and Social Care said that COVID-19 tests would continue to be free for NHS patient facing staff and that asymptomatic lateral flow testing will continue from April in some high-risk settings where infection can spread rapidly. The statement also confirmed that the cost will be met within existing funding arrangements.
