Scottish dispensing practices will receive a new COVID LFD test to provide regular asymptomatic testing.

The new test, Orient Gene LFD Self-test kit, is a nasal swab only test kit with a slightly different testing process, producing quicker results.

A Scottish Government circular sets out the arrangements for delivery, SOPs and dealing with residual test stocks.
