New Lighthouse Lab to boost NHS testing capacity

Lab capacity is to continue to increase ahead of winter, with a new Lighthouse Lab set to open near Loughborough by the end of September.

The new lab will be brought into the lab network this month and will be able to process around 50,000 tests per day by the end of the year.  Demand for testing continues to rise, with those tested for the first time increasing by 63% since mid-June.
