After the 30 minutes has passed make a note of the result and enter it on the NHS Track and Trace and the form situated on the StudentPortal. Please be careful not to forget about the test. If you leave it until after the 30-minute limit you will need to report it as a VOID test.

If there is a clinical incident that led or has potential for harm, participants are advised to report it on https://coronavirus-yellowcard.mhra.gov.uk. This is not for seeking immediate medical care. Medical care should be sought through the usual route of contacting 111 or 999.
11. Non-clinical issue
For incidents occurring at home, participants are advised to report any issues (something damaged, or missing or difficult to use in the kit, unable to log result etc.) to 119.
