Coronavirus: Screening

Question for Department of Health and Social Care

UIN HL6456, tabled on 6 July 2020

To ask Her Majesty's Government how many COVID-19 tests have been made available but not processed; and of those, how many relate to each pillar of the NHS Test and Trace programme.

Answered on

The Department does not hold data in this format. There will be many instances where the National Testing Programme sends kits out that are not used immediately, for example to be held at local sites for when they are needed. Due to the way in which tests are conducted, this will only be a consideration for Pillars 2 and 4.
