How long did your results take? I’m wondering if labs being at full capacity means the results are taking longer to come through.

I get tested weekly due to treatment for cancer. I have yet to be given results at all. I presume they'd only contact me if it was positive and treatment couldn't go ahead.

I had the test Sunday at about 4pm, had the results (negative thankfully) yesterday at 11am.. I’m in the north west, not sure if that makes a difference at the moment.

Tested Monday and still waiting. Work won't let me return without a negative result, even once ten day isolation period is up

I am doing the vaccine trial so swab weekly. Did it on Friday and have only just got the results back so they are defo backed up.

It's pretty worrying.... this will be a problem for preventing spread of the disease. If you test positive and you haven't isolated a persons contacts quickly then it's going to be spreading far and wide!

Monday morning. Still waiting!
