Lateral flow test results

From 22 December 2021 if you test positive on a Lateral Flow Test (LFT) you do not need to take a PCR to confirm, you can submit notification of your positive LFT below and begin your ten day isolation

If you have already tested positive by PCR, in order to match up your results, you will need to include your IM Number when submitting a negative LFT result. You will find your IM number on your original positive confirmation email.

Once you have submitted your positive result you will receive an email from 111 confirming your status.  

It is also now possible to reduce your ten day isolation if you return two negative LFTs in a row (with at least 24 hours between each test). You must submit these negative test results online, and if you record two negative tests before the end of your ten days you will receive an email confirming you can leave isolation early.

If you are unable to submit your LFT results online please contact 111 to record your results.

In order to submit your results you will need to include your NHS number and date of birth, please ensure these details are correct before submission.

You can request a copy of your NHS number via the nhs.uk website
