Access to COVID testing for pharmacy staff 

Amidst growing calls for key workers (including NHS staff) to be prioritised to receive COVID tests, NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSE&I) has advised primary care teams of how to escalate requests for testing needed for their staff.

In NHSE&I’s Primary Care Bulletin of 30th December 2021, contractors were advised to get in touch with their regional NHSE&I team who can put them in contact with the regional testing lead. Where PCR testing through normal routes is unavailable, regional testing leads may be able to help staff access alternative local testing.
