Quality Assurance Testing

Quality Assurance is an important part of the testing programme. It helps the NHS Test & Trace ensure that test kits are effective and that tests are being conducted correctly. One of the ways the quality assurance is undertaken is by doing a ‘dual test’. This means that, along with one LFD test, participants are asked to do one PCR test. Comparison of the results helps NHS Test & Trace to ensure the quality of LFD testing.

Students who are doing twice weekly rapid tests at home will also be provided one PCR kit by the school between 27th September and 1st October.
