Installing the Lateral Flow Testing App on your Mobile Device

If you have an MFT email address you can install the Lateral Flow Testing App on your Android or Apple phone or mobile device, making it even easier to submit your test result before coming to work.

If you have an Android (version 5.0 and up) device you can follow these steps to install the app:

  1. Download the Microsoft Power Apps app from the Google Play Store.
  2. Open the Power Apps app and Sign In using your MFT email address (e.g. joan.smith@mft.nhs.uk) and normal Windows password.
  3. Select the Lateral Flow Testing App from the list and enter your details and test result as normal.

Important: Data Usage

Downloading the app will use 80-125 MB of data - it is best to use a wifi connection for this. Using the app to submit a test uses a small amount of data. You should check your mobile data plan before installing to avoid unexpected costs.
