Lateral Flow Device Testing Guidance

 Lateral flow testing is important - using the testing kits regularly will help identify those who have COVID-19 but do not have any symptoms, helping to keep our staff, patients and the wider community safe. The opportunity to access this voluntary, twice weekly testing is available to all NHSGGC staff (in both patient facing and non-patient facing roles).

For access to new or replacement kits, please speak to your line manager. A new brand of kit is coming into circulation for Health and Social Care staff called Orient Gene. The tests in these kits are carried out differently to the current Innova ones and its essential that all staff familiarise themselves with the new process prior to use. 

Further information on all aspects of Lateral Flow Testing using both the current Innova kits and the new Orient Gene kits is available through the links below.
