Patient facing primary care staff in Scottish general practices are asked to reduce their frequency of LFD testing from daily back to twice weekly.

The return to pre-Omicron levels of LFD testing is based upon a reduction in COVID-19 prevalence in the community as well as a reduction in the number nosocomial clusters.

All staff are reminded to record LFD results (positive, negative and void) on the COVID Testing Portal
