Changes to Lateral Flow Test Collections

From 4 October, the way you pick up Lateral Flow Tests from Pharmacies has changed. Find out what you need to do differently.

Changes to Lateral Flow Test collections

From 4 October you will now need to get a Collection Code to pick up Lateral Flow Tests from your local pharmacy.

You just need to visit the government's dedicated website or call 119 (free from landlines and mobiles) and complete a short form. Lines are open to 119 from 7am to 11pm.

The code will then be sent to you via text or email. You can choose to print this off or show it to your pharmacy on your mobile or tablet. 

Remember, you will need a new Collection Code for each collection.
