Channel 4 News - Covid-19 testing

The following message has been posted on the Choice Forum.


I’m a journalist at Channel 4 News. We’re working on a report about what kind of access people who have a learning disability diagnosis, and live in supported living, have to Covid-19 testing.

Have you been able to get a test when you had symptoms? Have you and all your housemates been able to get tests to see if anyone in supported living is Covid-19? Have you been refused a test, or not been able to complete the online form?

If you or a loved one is in this position, I’d very much like to hear from you. You can email me on

Thanks so much for letting me post here, let me know if I need to make any changes to this post.
