RATs tests are for people who are symptomatic, or a household contact. They can be ordered online. People must take their order number along to one of the local RATs collections sites and stay in their car if it is a drive-through site.
In Stratford they can be collected from Mackays Pharmacy on 289 Broadway which is open between 8.30am and 5pm, Mondays to Fridays only. The team at Mackays ask people to call ahead before they come in to collect their pre-ordered RATs tests.
