Retail partnership with Lloyds Pharmacy for COVID-19 Antigen testing
05 January 2022
MyHealthChecked Plc (AIM: MHC), the consumer home-testing healthcare company, has signed a contract with AAH Pharmaceuticals Limited (“Lloyds Pharmacy”) for supply of the Fit to Fly/Pre-departure rapid antigen test. The test can be taken at home prior to travel, or overseas prior to returning to the UK, with results verified by a trained professional within two hours of completing the test, and provides the passenger with a certificate suitable for outbound or return travel.
The rapid antigen tests and accompanying verification service provided by MyHealthChecked will be the only COVID rapid antigen test sold through Lloyds Pharmacy and will accompany the portfolio of PCR kits that the pharmacy began selling online in August.
The Fit to Fly rapid tests will launch at Lloyds Pharmacy in January 2022.
Penny McCormick, Chief Executive Officer of MyHealthChecked Plc, said:
“I am pleased to build on our existing relationship with Lloyds Pharmacy with our new COVID-19 antigen test service for travel. Lloyds Pharmacy is already well established with a PCR testing portfolio that includes inbound PCR testing for fully vaccinated and non-vaccinated customers. We are delighted to be supporting Lloyds Pharmacy further with their growing COVID testing portfolio and working with them as testing protocols for travel continue to evolve.”
