We are currently setting up a digital solution to capture all home tests which are not returned by post within seven days. On 10 August 2020, 62% of home test kits had been returned.

Turnaround times for tests conducted under Pillar 1 and Pillar 2 are published weekly on as part of the Weekly NHS Test and Trace Bulletin.
