Evans Pharmacy on Charles Street is now supplying free lateral flow test kits for COVID-19, as part of the NHS Test & Trace scheme. The tests, which are designed to provide reassurance for individuals and employers, must only be used if you don’t have any symptoms of COVID-19.
The pharmacy can supply one box of seven tests per person, which must be collected by someone aged over 18. However, the tests are safe for children to use.
You’ll need to carry out the test away from the pharmacy and register your result online at www.gov.uk/report-covid19-result within 24 hours of taking the test. Or, you can call 119 to register your result or if you need any help with the test.
If you have symptoms of COVID-19, or your lateral flow test is positive, please visit www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test or call 119 to book a PCR test. You may need to self-isolate until you get the results of the PCR test – please visit either of the Government testing websites or call 119 to find out more.
