Pharmacy Collect: Additional LFD stock still available


The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) are continuing to deliver stocks of lateral flow device (LFD) test kits to Alliance Healthcare for onward delivery to pharmacies.

Community pharmacy contractors requiring additional stocks of LFD test kits for their pharmacies can request up to three additional cartons of test kits by emailing the Pharmacy Collect team at Requests should only be placed for pharmacies that are running out of their allocation within the day and are having to turn away customers. Contractors will need to provide the pharmacy name, address, ODS code, Alliance Healthcare customer account number and the number of cartons required up to a maximum of three cartons.

This order is in addition to the one carton daily order allowance that contractors can place through Alliance Healthcare. Orders will be dealt with on a first come, first served basis. The UKHSA will be working with Alliance Healthcare to fulfil these order requests and will supply Alliance Healthcare with a list of additional contractor orders each day. Alliance Healthcare will then process these orders and deliver them in line with their current delivery SLA with the UKHSA. Please note, this does not mean that contractors will receive the extra stock within three days of their email to the Pharmacy Collect Team.

The UKHSA has confirmed that they will review supplies on 11th February 2022 and work with PSNC to confirm and communicate if further additional orders can be accepted from contractors.
