Testing for employers
NHS Test and Trace is working with government departments, institutions and employers across both public and private sectors to support asymptomatic testing for organisations of any size.
This will be through on-site testing in the workplace, the option to refer employees to a particular testing site and rollout of testing at home to individuals (subject to further approvals).
NHS Test and Trace will provide tests, other peripherals, standard operating procedures, training and other guidance (tests will be provided free to private institutions until the end of March 2021).
This franchise model builds on the rollouts that have already been undertaken for NHS staff, the adult social care sector, schools and universities.
To register their interest in the scheme, businesses must send their company name, registration number, contact details and sector type, along with the number of employees to P-and-PSector@dhsc.gov.uk with 'Register interest for National Worker Programme' in the subject line or register online.
Businesses are also welcome to direct staff to one of the Council testing sites for people without symptoms at Winsford Lifestyle Centre or Stanney Oaks Leisure Centre, in Ellesmere Port.
