You will be issued an order number and then you can then collect your RAT order from a RAT collection site, or have someone collect it for you.
For people who are not unwell or a household contact, but want to get a RAT for other purposes, such as to visit an elderly relative, you will also be able to purchase these at retailers – including supermarkets.
