In the light of the Omicron wave, demand for LFD tests has increased; however, there is no shortage of lateral flow device tests and we continue to procure enough stock, including in the Wakefield and West Yorkshire areas, through our national and local delivery channels. We have significantly increased distribution capacity to meet current demand. Lateral flow device tests can also be collected from local pharmacies and some community sites.
