From 1st April 2022 you will no longer be able to order free lateral flow tests although you will be able to purchase them yourself if you wish to. 

If you are having trouble ordering your home testing kits through Gov.uk, please try again later as more are released throughout the day. Alternatively, you can visit one of the community testing sites in the borough to pick up tests.

In order to protect yourself and others you may still want to take lateral flow tests before meeting up with others, particularly vulnerable people, and especially if you’ll be crowded together indoors.
