Growing our relationship with Occupational Health providers
We're delighted to be official supporters of the Society of Occupational Medicine. Over recent weeks we’ve had a few situations where a business has approached us direct to set up a testing plan for their workplace. We’re great supporters of Occupational Health providers and recognise the valuable service that they deliver. As a result, we’ve helped connect a number of our customers with local OH expertise, to help manage onsite delivery of testing including swabbing and results feedback.
Government issues guidance on Workplace Testing
We've completed the compliance and regulatory leg work for you.
Last week the government issued guidance on workplace testing, covering a wealth of information and recommendations. You’ll be pleased to hear that as suppliers to the Department of Health and Social Care, here at Covid Testing Network, we've already done most of the hard work for you—from ensuring testing kits and labs tick the ‘legally required standard’ boxes, to supplying the recommended packaging for sample transportation. Read our latest article on workplace testing here.
If you’re thinking of workplace testing, please do call our Account Management team they’re very knowledgeable and we can get you up and running, secure in the knowledge you’re compliant with regulations.
The cost of testing drops 50% thanks to 'Pool Testing'
Covid Testing Network leads the way in affordable workplace testing
Back in the spring, we introduced Pool Testing as an option for UK workplaces. Pooling is a method whereby several swabs can be processed at a time in a lab, saving valuable lab time and significantly reducing the time it takes to deliver results.
The outcome has been that we're able to cut the cost of testing plans by over 50%, delivering significant savings for our customers and bringing the opportunity to provide weekly tests for employees within the grasp of hundreds more businesses.
