Covid-19 home testing
Video assistance for home testing via Be My Eyes
COVID testing at home is a step nearer to being more accessible for blind and partially sighted people as the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) launches free live video assistance to any UK citizen via the Be My Eyes app.
Be My Eyes can connect people to specially trained NHS Test and Trace staff who can help as much or as little with the at-home PCR or lateral flow testing process. From ordering a test kit to taking and returning the test.
TPT and Sight Loss Councils have worked alongside partners RNIB, Macular Society and Visionary, throughout the last six months, to provide insights, assist in the training of specialist agents, and taking the service from a critical trial phase to full launch.
