Data availability, timing and quality All test records are verified to ensure the NHS number is correct before making them available via the API. In most cases this is automatic, and the record is available within 48 hours of the test event, sometimes sooner. In a very small number of cases, we are unable to verify the NHS number, and we do not make the test record available at all.
