Commmunity Pharmacies are likely to have seen a significant increase in demand for lateral flow devices following the prime ministers address to the nation on Sunday night. PSNC have been assured by NHS test and trace that plenty of stock is available but pharmacies may be experiencing some short term stock shortages from Alliance Healthcare. There have been reports of challenges for pharmacies when customers arrive without a collect code or are unwilling to get one. Although customers shoud be encouraged to use a collect code pharmacies can still supply the kits as an anonymous collection if the customer does not have one.
