Andrew has contacted the CCG and Director of Public Health to ask about poor availability of Lateral Flow Test kits in the area which are meant to be free and accessible by ordering or through pharmacies.
“People have been writing to express their frustration. The trouble is that many more tests are now being done with the arrival of omicron and ministers are prioritizing the NHS and schools.
“I have just had an email from Wiltshire’s Director of Public Health saying that more stock is on its way and that availability will increase. She advises people needing test kits to persist.”
