Covid19 Lateral Flow testing

 Covid19 Lateral Flow testing

Lateral Flow Testing 

We would like to thank all of you who have been using Lateral Flow Device (LFD) Testing regularly and are continuing to do so.  We know that people can carry and transmit COVID-19 while being asymptomatic and by using LFD testing it means asymptomatic COVID-19 positive people can self-isolate immediately, reducing the risk of spreading the virus to others including patients, colleagues and families.

Bank Staff can access LFD Testing kits in the ward or clinical area they are working in.  

Alternatively, lateral Flow testing kits are available for collection from West Glasgow ACH, Dalnair Street, G3 8SJ and collection can be arranged by emailing: [email protected]

Using the Lateral Flow testing kit couldn’t be easier.  Simply register your kit as soon as you receive it and then regularly record all of your results (even negative results) using the online portal.  It is important to continue to test twice weekly, even if you have received both vaccine shots.  A step by step guide is available on the website. Updated FAQs are available on our website, which should answer any questions you might have.  However, if there is anything that isn’t covered and you need some further help, please email: [email protected]

Please remember:   

 Undertaking COVID-19 Lateral Flow Tests (LFT) reduces the risk of spreading the virus to others including patients, colleagues and family. Please remember to take your test and upload the results to the portal: http://covidtestingportal.scot

 It is vital that we all play our part in helping to identify positive cases early to help us learn to live with the threat of the virus and safely return to everyday activities and lives.
