The Sore Throat Test and Treat Service: speed should not substitute science.

Abstract:
We enjoyed the article1 on new technologies in general practice and are excited by their potential; however, it is vitally important that these are appropriately researched. Recently, NHS England and Boots introduced point-of-care throat swab tests into Boots pharmacies2 and following a small feasibility evaluation3 (designed and funded by Boots) they now plan to roll this out nationally.
