Do you qualify for immediate COVID-19 testing?
In line with Public Health England and Government guidance, our Trust has taken measures to ensure health care providers and their workers wellbeing during this COVID-19 period, whilst at the same time facilitating safe and healthy staff to provide safe patient care.
Have you or one of your household had COVID-19 like symptoms for 24 hours?
This site allows frontline staff with possible COVID-19 like symptoms and also for isolating staff whose household contain individuals with possible COVID-9 like symptoms to make a booking to a have a swab taken for subsequent testing for all symptomatic individuals.
The staff member must not come to work and should book an appointment for all symptomatic individuals, if they have been symptomatic for 24 hours, into the drive thru site for swab testing. You should have access to a car and not travel to the site via public transport or taxi service. If you don't have access to a car, please liaise with your line manager, who is then able to contact the occupational health department for advice.
Your healthcare provider will provide advice on either 10 day or 14 day isolation or a sooner safe return to work based on test results.
Anyone presenting for an appointment who is not symptomatic, will not be tested.
