Breaking news this hour on LBC confirming what many suspected, that no tests are available in the top ten worst affected regions, and possibly even the majority of the country. These private companies running this testing on behalf of the government must be held to account.
Such a backlog has resulted in UK swabs being sent abroad for processing.
What an utter farce. Why can other countries manage it so well and we can’t?

DD3 managed to get one after 15 hours of refreshing on the net.
Arrived for a 9:30 test, 6 lanes of testers, all fully staffed and she was the only vehicle onsite! No more arrived whilst she was there. Negative test result by 3:00pm.

Rslsys, wow a result within 8hrs, that’s amazing. I’m thinking I’ll be very lucky if I get mine within 24hrs!

I have been trying all day to get test for DS. Looked promising as test site 70 miles was offered but then disappeared. I must have tried 50 times, what a joke. Very frustrating. I tried all sorts of combos..got very fed up ‘verifying’ I was human.

I see the numbers are 2.5 k roughly today... hmmm I wonder why.

It does feel like this is a deliberate cluster fuck to make the results look lower
