A letter  Antibody testing programme roll out for NHS staff and patients: Letter from Pauline Philip and Professor Steven Powis  was published earlier in the week.  Nikki Kanani has highlighted how this will help us understand how the disease will spread and will work alongside PCR testing which will confirm whether or not someone currently has the virus.  The antibody test will be available for practices to use from today as you deem appropriate to manage your patients.  Where there is not a specific clinical indication for the test, the Secretary of State has announced that it may be offered to NHS patients already having their blood taken and who wish to know whether they have been infected with COVID19.  The NHS lab result will be available to the practice in the normal way and it is their responsibility to inform the patient of the result and that a positive test does not indicate immunity to COVID19.
