Antibody testing for Covid-19
The initial phase of antibody testing roll-out, in line with national guidance, will focus on the testing of priority staff and patients in acute hospital settings. The programme will then expand over the following weeks to cover community and primary care-based NHS and social care staff.
Patients in the community, where indicated based on their clinician’s advice, will be also eligible for antibody testing on a priority basis once this phase is rolled out.
