Our aim is to roll out rapid testing to emergency admission (via ED) patients using lateral flow devices (LFD) on nasal swab samples, where other forms of rapid testing are not available.
This will enable fast tracking of COVID-19 positive patients admitted via the emergency department and reduce the risk of transmission.
