Randox tests quickly

With the Government changing the border control rules with respect to Covid, Randox and Pay Point have announced an expansion of their partnership providing a vital service for travellers returning to the UK.
(See New border rules in this week’s BTN).

Travellers can now order a Randox test online for click and collect at a local store within the Collect+ network, initially available in over 5,000 locations, and soon in over 10,000 places nationwide.

The service has been launched to coincide with changes to the travel policy allowing fully vaccinated arrivals from non-red list countries to take a lateral flow (antigen) test, with a PCR test only required if a positive lateral flow result is returned.

In addition, from mid-January, PayPoint will give consumers the ability to walk into a local store and pick up a test immediately in over 2,500 locations, with no need to order online. This service will be offered in partnership with major convenience retailers including Scotmid Co-operative and Spar in the North West and Scotland.

Day 2 lateral flow tests must be ordered before travel to England.  Travellers can now conveniently collect these tests from local stores for just £18.95, rather than waiting at home for deliveries to arrive.

Using the free Randox CertiFly App results are processed within three hours and a report delivered in-app and via email, allowing arrivals to complete their Day 2 test in a convenient safe location.  Positive case travellers will be contacted by ‘test and trace’ and will have to isolate for the mandatory period.
