In line with Public Health England and Government guidance, our Trust has taken measures to ensure health care providers and their workers well-being 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 got COVID-19 like symptoms (e.g. fever, persistent cough, persistent headache or a change in taste or smell?)
If so, please contact the Covid Testing Team at email@example.com to arrange an appointment. All emails will be responded to within 24 hours.
Appointments should ideally be made between day 3 to 5 of when symptoms first appeared as results are more accurate. Testing can however be performed on day 1-2 if urgent.
Please note; if you are found to be COVID positive, it will be necessary to share this information with a limited number of managers (including Occupational Health and Infection Prevention & Control) within your organisation in order to comply with track and trace procedures and to maintain patient safety. Reporting the test results is a statutory requirement, but is also very important for staff surveillance purposes and in understanding infection rates in hospitals, including the effectiveness of PPE.
