NHS Test and Trace launches campaign to encourage everyone with symptoms to get a free test

Alongside the campaign, a new business plan has been launched, which sets out major expansion of the service over the next 6 months, including doubling testing capacity to 500,000 tests a day ahead of winter

SPS commentary:

The business plan sets out ambitions to:

  • double daily COVID-19 testing capacity to 500,000 by the end of October
  • test 150,000 at-risk people without symptoms per day by September
  • increase testing sites to more than 500 across the country by October
  • have 100,000 people participating in research studies into COVID-19 immunity by September
