Royal Mail to collect COVID-19 test kits 7 days a week

From 21st November Royal Mail will support the collection of COVID-19 tests 7 days a week.

Collections will be made from over 15,000 priority postboxes on a Sunday, which can be found using the Royal Mail website or its app.

Royal Mail has also increased its number of priority postboxes available for Monday to Saturday postings from 33,000 to over 35,000.

Nick Landon, Chief Commercial Officer at Royal Mail, said: “Since April, we have played a crucial role in the movement of test kits. This includes delivery to and collection from the growing number of regional test centres and care providers and the return of home tests.”

“As part of this we introduced a unique network of priority postboxes for the rapid return of test kits to labs to help in the country’s fight against the pandemic.”
