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 loss/change in taste or smell?)
If so, please use this system to book yourself a PCR swab.
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 contact the Covid Testing Team if you have children under 5 in your booking on a Thursday or Sunday as there is no under 5 swabbing on these days. Alternatively you should book a different day.
Have you been contacted by Test and Trace, had a risk assessment done by your line manager and met the criteria to have a PCR swab? The contact the Covid Testing Team to book you a ringfenced slot.
For queries and support please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 01622 939534
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.
