After April - On Going Covid Testing for the Immunocompromised
This is very pertinent as my wife is currently isolating having tested positive by firstly LFT and then PCR for Covid.
I live in Scotland and have just read the Test and Protect Transition information published yesterday by the Scottish Government. It looks like there will still be testing - both LFT and PCR - available for those eligible for anti viral treatment though it appears that this will only be available via the home order system.
Here's the relevant statement :-
'Those who are eligible for anti-viral treatments now, and for those future treatments in development, will continue to be able to access testing – in the community and in hospital settings.
The current route for people across the UK to access testing for the purpose of accessing antiviral treatment is the home order channel for both LFD and for follow up PCR. This route will remain the key route for access for those in the community.'
I assume this will be the practice in the rest of the UK.
