Coronavirus testing options in Hounslow

What are LFDs (Lateral flow devices)? 

Rapid LATERAL FLOW TESTING is for ALL residents WITHOUT symptoms.

Lateral flow devices (LFDs) are one of the new tools being used to help us to detect and fight COVID-19. 

Lateral flow tests are designed to detect the presence or absence of coronavirus amongst people who are not experiencing symptoms (asymptomatic) and would not otherwise be coming forward for a test. The test cannot tell whether you have had the virus in the past, or if you have recently been exposed to the virus but are not yet infectious. This is a public health measure to help control the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Hounslow.   

These tests are safe, free and do not require a laboratory to process the results.

Results are available in approximately 30 minutes.
