We'll have features and advice on everything from relationships, sexual health, mental and physical conditions and how to stay fit. You can follow any of links provided below for more information direct from the NHS website, or see this week's feature T: Trichomoniasis (STI).

Find A Pharmacy That Offers Free Covid 19 Rapid Lateral Flow Tests

Who can get free COVID-19 rapid lateral flow tests

You can get free COVID-19 rapid lateral flow tests from a pharmacy if you're at risk of being seriously ill with COVID-19.

You do not need an appointment but you'll need to show your pharmacy that you're eligible for COVID-19 treatments.

Find out if you're eligible for treatments for COVID-19

What you'll need

When you collect your free COVID-19 tests, you'll need to tell the pharmacy your:

  • name
  • address
  • date of birth
  • medical condition

If you've been sent a letter or email from the NHS about COVID-19 treatments, you should show this at the pharmacy to help confirm your eligibility.

Anyone collecting COVID-19 tests on your behalf will also need to give their name and address.

OutUK's A to Z of Gay Health continues and you can read this week's feature T: Trichomoniasis (STI). We have covered many subjects in this series and you can catch up with all of our Previous A to Z Features.

If you want to find out more about this particular topic you can visit the Original article on the NHS website. If you are worried by any aspect of your health make sure you go and see your doctor or book an appointment at your local clinic.
