COVID-19 test kit instructions in alternative formats

If you're blind or partially sighted and need to get a coronavirus (COVID-19) test, we can help by providing you with the home test kit instructions in braille, audio (CD), or large print.

The two main tests are:

  • rapid lateral flow tests – these give a quick result using a device similar to a pregnancy test
  • PCR tests – these are sent to a lab to be checked

Both tests are only free to eligible groups.

Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms or a positive test result should check the latest advice on the NHS website.
