NHS Test and Trace are continuing to develop and improve the process for self-test reporting lateral flow test results. Currently, if a parent is submitting results through their account on behalf of their child, they have to enter the child’s details every time they report a result.
As a result of feedback from parents, NHS Test and Trace have introduced household accounts. This allows parents to save their children’s details to their own user accounts, so parents can report results for multiple members in the household more quickly and easily.
When reporting self-test results parents will now be offered the opportunity to create a household account, which should take no more than 2 minutes. Parents can then add all household members to their account, enabling them to save time when reporting all future self-test results.
