Boris Johnson announced the availability of twice weekly lateral flow testing for all in England via a number of routes including work place and community testing and collection from a number of sites. Community Pharmacies can participate in this extension to NHS track and trace by signing up to a new advanced service called Pharmacy Collect. Pharmacies that sign up to this service will be paid a fee for each supply made to customers who request them and will receive a £450 set up fee if they register for the service by 18th April. Once registered pharmacies will be able to order the LFD kits free of charge from wholesalers selected for this service  by NHS England.
