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.  If you have not started testing yet we would encourage you to take part.  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.

Lateral Flow testing kits are available for collection from West Glasgow ACH, Dalnair Street, G3 8SJ and collection slots 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]

We understand that the previous registration process took time, however, the portal has been improved based on your feedback.  As we progress to more opportunities to meet our friends and families in the coming weeks it is very important that we keep testing to ensure our patients and colleagues are not at risk.  

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’s important we  continue to undertake Lateral Flow Tests to protect patients, colleagues and family.  If you need a replacement/new kit, contact the staff bank.   Further developments have been made to the  ePortal , so it’s now even simpler to report your results.    Further info on LFT is available here

 

  • Register your kit
  • Test twice per week (unless you are using PCR, which means that you only need to use LFT once) and record your results
  • If you have tested positive through PCR you should not commence/recommence the LFT testing programme until 90 days after your positive test result
  • If you register a negative test result with your LFT, but are showing symptoms of COVID-19, you must self-isolate and book a PCR test through either NHS Inform or the staff testing site.

 

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.

  • Collection slots can not be arranged by calling the Staff Bank.
  • Can we request that you please do not come to West Glasgow ACH unless you have a pre-arranged appointment slot
