Following the government’s announcement to limit free COVID-19 testing from 1st April, Boots has announced it will launch affordable COVID-19 lateral flow tests in its stores and online, for asymptomatic testing.
From tomorrow, customers can purchase a pack of four lateral flow tests for £17, or one test for £5.99, from boots.com, with both options including delivery. This test will offer customers an option to send their results to the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) to report a negative test, should customers need it.*
From early March, the health and beauty retailer will also offer lateral flow tests at over 400 Boots stores, priced at just £2.50 for a single test or £12 for a pack of five. These tests will also be available on boots.com, alongside a bundle for two tests at £4.75 and four tests at £9.50.**
Asif Aziz, Director of Healthcare Services at Boots UK, said: “We are pleased to be expanding our COVID-19 testing services even further, with affordablelateral flow testing options for those who still want peace of mind from asymptomatic testing after 1 April.
“While it is great that we are returning to normal and finding a way to live with COVID-19, we encourage our customers and patients to stay safe and continue to take measures to limit the spread of the virus, especially to those in vulnerable groups.”
Boots continues to offer a broad range of private COVID-19 testing services, including pre- and post-travel testing.
*Customers can report results to the UKHSA but cannot use these tests as a verified test for travel requiring a negative antigen test certificate.

For orders under £25 we charge £3.75 for standard delivery, £4.95 for next day delivery. Customers can also collect from store for £1.50 or free if the total order is under £15.
