Covid-19 home testing
Video assistance for home testing via Be My Eyes
COVID testing at home is a step further to being more accessible for blind and partially sighted people as Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) launched 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 with as much or as little of 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 take the service from a critical trial phase to full launch.
