COVID Testing at Company Premises

The Government is rolling out on-site COVID testing for all companies in England that employ over 50 people for staff that cannot work at home.

If you would like to participate in this programme please contact direct, where you will be directed to attend workshops run by the Department for Health.

Note: the testing will be carried out by trained staff of your company, not by medical staff, so this will require the company finding resource to manage the process, including registering the test results. More information of how the process will work is available in the attachment.

This programme has been available for a few weeks to some larger companies considered ‘essential’ but is now being more widely rolled out.

Please also note that the swab testing will probably have to be dealt with as clinical waste and there is likely to be a cost to establishing this process, please check this if you use the contact given above.
