Coronavirus: Free antibody tests to be available on NHS after deal made with Roche, government says | UK News



Antibody tests will be available on the NHS following an agreement between the government and pharmaceutical firm Roche, Downing Street has said.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock will set out further details later about a deal on the supply of the tests after negotiations were carried out.

The prime minister’s official spokesman told reporters: “The tests will be free for people who need them, as you would expect.

“NHS and care workers will be prioritised for the tests.”
