Testing, testing

The government has significantly reduced the price of NHS travel testing packages, so that anyone travelling abroad can access high quality tests at a reasonable price.

  • We all understand that concerns about the cost of PCR testing can sometimes be a barrier to travel. 
  • That is why the Health Secretary has slashed the cost of day 2 and day 8 tests from NHS Test and Trace by a fifth – with single test packages being reduced from £88 to £68 and the price for two tests being lowered from £170 to £136. 
  • The government has also asked the Competition and Markets Authority to urgently review the private testing market and will continue to crack down on exploitative practices.
