Delivery of LFD testing kits

In the coming months care homes will be provided with LFD testing kits that will come in smaller boxes of 7 kits. These kits are also approved for self-testing at home.

Until this new stock is available, care homes will continue to use the Innova LFD kits of 25 tests. Your next delivery will be larger than usual because stock is to be issued before the end of June to meet Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) requirements.
