UK's coronavirus testing system hit by Roche supply problems
Roche is one of the main suppliers of diagnostic tests to Britain's National Health Service (NHS) Test and Trace programme.
Roche said the delay in dispatching some of its diagnostic products to the NHS was caused by unforeseen problems that arose during a switch from an old warehouse to a new UK distribution centre in September.
"We deeply regret that there has been a delay in the dispatch of some products and apologise to any of our customers who have been impacted," Roche said in a statement. ■
