Confused about care home lateral flow device testing?

Lateral flow device (LFD) testing in care homes is now required in recent government guidance. The LFD tests must be carried out in addition to the PCR tests. This testing combination is expected to reduce the number of COVID-19 outbreaks in care services.

There have been lots of questions around LFD tests: who should be tested and how often, what to do if a staff member receives a positive COVID-19 result, and more.

We’ve consulted with experts to create an LFD testing guidance document that will hopefully answer all your niggling questions. We hope it helps you feel more prepared when it comes to LFD testing in your care service.

If you have any questions about the guidance or any of our other COVID-19 resources, just ping us a message by clicking the pink Chat button in the bottom right-hand corner.
