🚨 In recent months there has been speculation to whether the UK Government is planning on ending access to free lateral flow tests in England.

πŸ“œ In a recent poll by Leukaemia Care, 92% of patients said they benefitted from access to lateral flow tests, with 64% sharing that it benefitted their mental health.

❗ Being able to access free lateral flow tests is essential for leukaemia patients which is why we are calling for the Department for Health and Social Care to reconsider any plans of removing access to free lateral flow tests until rates of COVID-19 are much lower in the UK.
