The NHS Community Pharmacy COVID-19 Lateral Flow Distribution Service ("Pharmacy Collect")

This new Advanced Service commenced on 29th March 2021 and involves the distribution of Lateral Flow Device (LFD) test kits to the public and aims to improve access to asymptomatic COVID-19 testing. 

The service is part of the NHS Test and Trace offering to the public to allow asymptomatic people to collect LFD test kits free of charge from community pharmacies so they can undertake regular testing as part of the Government’s COVID-19 roadmap plan. Marketing and communications aimed at the public will refer to the service as Pharmacy Collect. 
The full service requirements are included in the service specification, which contractors must read before deciding whether to provide the service.
