“This will also help ease pressure on our community testing centres. Please, only request RATs if you have symptoms, you are a household contact or have been directed to take a test by a health official. There’s no need to get a RAT just in case.
“Additional pharmacies are gearing up to become RAT collections sites in the coming days.
“It’s really important that you log the result of your RAT test so that you get the support that you may need if you have tested positive.
“You can do this online through My Covid Record or over the phone by free calling 0800 222 478 and choose option 3. You can also report a RAT result for someone else using these methods. To make a report on behalf of someone else you will need their NHI number, full name and date of birth.”
