Lateral Flow Tests

Please read the following letter on lateral flow - mobile sites

21st May 2021

 

Dear Parent / Guardian,

 

 

Kirklees Council is bringing a mobile collection point to a number of areas across the borough – including your ward - to make it easier for local people to access Covid-19 Lateral Flow home testing kits.

 

In a national effort to reduce infection rates, twice-weekly asymptomatic Covid-19 testing is currently available for everyone in England.

 

You may already be aware that there are a few different ways you can access your twice-weekly asymptomatic tests. However, we know it can be difficult for some people to access these options for a number of reasons.

 

That’s why, as part of a pilot, we’re setting up a one-day mobile collection point in each the following areas: That’s why as part of a pilot we’re setting up a one-day mobile collection point in each the following areas: Dewsbury, Ravensthorpe, Heckmondwike, Honley, Huddersfield, and Saville Town between the dates of 21 May – 28 May 2021.

 

We’re doing this as a continued pilot to better understand demand for this type of service. So please use the mobile collection point if it is in your local area and you’re struggling to access your twice-weekly asymptomatic tests through the other options available.

 

Anyone over 18 can collect two packs of home testing kits (containing seven tests each) – the times, dates and locations are in the below table.

 

You don’t need to book, just turn up and please wear a face covering and social distance from those outside your household or bubble.

 

The tests come with instructions on how to use the tests and how frequently you should take them. We will have staff on hand to show you how to use the tests should you need help. You will also be able to take a test a lateral flow Covid-19 test at the mobile collection point if you wish.
