On 21st January, Government wrote to our lawyers to say that they had cancelled, with immediate effect, all outstanding orders placed with Abingdon Health for antibody lateral flow tests, because they had failed to gain approval from the MHRA for home use of those tests.
Government also confirmed that they won’t be placing any more orders under their existing contract with Abingdon Health.
Abingdon Health did not disclose this to the market when it issued a trading update yesterday.
The letter from the Government Legal Department can be read here.
We expect to make further, shocking, disclosures about Government and Abingdon’s conduct in this case over the coming period. It’s only possible to take this case thanks to the support of hundreds of people.
It is only with your support that we can continue to hold Government to account. If you would like to make a donation, you can do so here.
